Genuine Antique Map

1858

Maker: G.K. Warren

 

Antique map of Kansas, Nebraska, Dakota and part Colorado and Wyoming, based upon surveys and reconnaissance expeditions conducted between 1823 and 1857, by Gouverneur Kemble Warren. This is the first state of this map, c. 1858, which is described by some as "virtually unobtainable." It includes one of the earliest maps to reference the Gold Regions in part of Kansas Territory which would become Colorado Territory. The Gold Fields on Cherry Creek are shown on the first state of the map, with the second state of the map updated to add the place name "Auraria." This was one of the first gold rush settlements in this part of the Rockies, which is now the Denver area. This is the first state of the map, lacking the Auraria reference which would have appeared around 35° N, 105° W on the map. The second state also includes, to the right of the title, the words "Engraving Carefully Revised G.K. Warren Lieut. Top Engrs." With fantastic detail of Native American Indian Nations, forts, exploration routes, and more. This map has been well studied and additional information about it is available in many places on the internet. This map is almost never available on the market and it is an incredible find. It has been backed on linen. Some signs of age remain, including repaired tears and tape stain on the left side. Some waviness most noticeable at edges. Overall very good condition. Measures approx. 42.5 x 31.75 inches to the neatline and 45.75 x 33.75 inches to the sheet edges. ***Note: this item will require additional insurance above what is included with the shipping as calculated by our website- we will send an invoice for the additional cost before shipping***
