"North America with USA, Canada, Texas & Mexico 1843"

Engraved by J. & C. Walker, published by "The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge" (SDUK) in 1843.

This listing is for a very detailed high quality and high resolution reprint, suitable for framing, taken from a scan of the original steel engraved map with full original hand coloring. This map is interesting in that it clearly shows Texas as separate country.

From Wikipedia

"The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, founded in 1826, was a Whiggish London organisation that published inexpensive texts intended to adapt scientific and similarly high-minded material for the rapidly expanding reading public. It was established mainly at the instigation of Lord Brougham with the objects of publishing information to people who were unable to obtain formal teaching, or who preferred self-education. The Society was sometimes mentioned in contemporary sources as SDUK."

"An American group of the same name was founded as part of the Lyceum movement in the United States around the same period. Its Boston branch sponsored lectures by such speakers as Ralph Waldo Emerson, and was active from 1829 to 1947. Henry David Thoreau cites the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge in his essay "Walking" in which he jestingly proposes a Society for the Diffusion of Useful Ignorance."

Some defects present on the original, such as marks, creases or folds, may still be visible. This is public domain material that was never copyrighted.

It measures approx. 8 x 10 ins.

The print is sent airmail.
