It is by Felix Ansart, from his. Atlas Historique et Geographique Ancien Et Moderne. A copy of the title page is included. The map has a date of 1862 in the title area, although it is an older map showing the early territories of Nebraska, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico that existed prior to 1859.The title of the atlas and F. Ansart appear in the upper margin.
Overall a very well preserved rare map with nice strong color and an antique appearance that would frame up very well. Size: The image/text area measures approximately 9 1/2 x 12 3/4 inches (24x32cm) on an 11 1/2 by 17 inch page (29x43cm) with a margin all around, as seen in the main pic. Condition: It is in Good to Very Good condition for its age with overall light tonal ageing on a buff color paper with original handcoloring and a centerfold as issued.
There are a couple of purplish stains in the left margin and some minor browning, otherwise a very clean map with strong color and a antique appearance that many desire, see the pics for more on condition. The pics are of the actual map.Check out my other items. Be sure to add me to your favorites list.
