Antique map of North America published by G. Virtue, 26 Ivy Lane, London. Published c. 1856 to 1860. This map has been identified as 1856, but identical maps have been placed as 1855 to 1860. Steel Engraving with original color outline, 342 mm X 250 mm. Almost identical to the John Tallis map of this period, but more rare.

This map of North America has beautiful vignettes: White Bears, Capt. Parry Wintering in the Arctic Regions, Geysers, Iceland, Whale Fishery, First Landing of Columbus, Remains of Ancient Temple, Mexico, Falls of Niagara, Indian Chief and Hunting the Buffalo.

There are two horizontal folds with very small edge tears. Four pieces of clear tape have secured the map to a backing on the map’s reverse, but do not impact the maps front. The map is otherwise in good condition, although I don’t know if I would find it sufficiently accurate for navigating my way to Disneyland in the Winnebago.

A marvelous image that captures the spirit of early North America before modernization tamed the continent.
