Antique hand-colored map of North America, by Mitchell, published in "Mitchell's School and Family Geography," 1839. This map captures a unique moment in the history of North America, when Texas was a republic, Russia owned Alaska, the United States had contested claims with Britain on the West Coast and in Maine, and Mexico still owned California and other south western states. Also shows topographical details and oceanic distances to other parts of the globe. Fair antique condition with overall toning, faded color, and a water stain at bottom. Framed- frame is in very good condition. Measures approximately 10.5" x 8" to the neatline and approx. 16 x 13 inches to the outer edges of the frame. Can be shipped unframed for lower shipping cost (map price remains the same).
