Antique French Mapof North America from 1891. Included are The US, Canada and Mexico, territories and public lands.This is a beautiful engraving of the US at a time before all the lands were became official States.

This beautiful map represents North America in the XIX th century. The details in this map are spectacular .The map was made by F. Prudent, Chief of the intelligence of Geography of the French Army. This whole map was engraved by Erhard. He was known as one of the top engravers at the time. It took a day to carve one square inch on a copper plate. You can see how painstakenly he worked to create this beauty. You can see and feel the lines left by the plates, creating depth to your map.

The colors in the map are beautiful watercolors, overlaying the engraving, giving yet another dimension. The paper is a high quality heavy weighted paper that still retains a nice satin sheen. The images here do not do the map justice.

I only deal with original antiques. I guarantee all of my vintage to be authentic.


Engraving by: Erhard in Paris, at 35Rue Denfert Rochereau

Dimensions: 18"1/4 by 14"3/4

The map is in Excellent condition .The map is on a high quality heavyweight paper. There is a slight patina from the normal aging process, which is to be expected for being 120 years old. Margins are complete (even if the photo looks cropped, because of Etsy size limitations. A full scan can be sent to you uppon request) The minor normal aging is not in the map itself and will not show once framed. This does not affect the quality of the map and is to be expected from a map of this age.There are no other blemishes nor defects on this map. The back has some details about the map itself in French..

Purchased item will not contain watermark. This item will be sent from Paris, France in special archival sleeve to protect it, then inside security packaging to avoid it from being bent or folded.
