Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map


Maker: Johnson and Ward.


Antique hand colored map of Mexico showing states, published in 1864. Shows early Texas and Southwest settlements. Inset map of the Territory and isthmus of Tehuantepec, where a railway was proposed. While the idea of a canal across the isthmus failed to gain momentum due to the enormous cost of such a project, engineer James B. Eads proposed to construct a quadruple track ship-railway, and the scheme received serious attention for some time. Then came projects for an ordinary railway, and several concessions were granted by the Mexican government for this purpose from 1857 to 1882. Good condition with toning, spotting/staining. Approx. 12.75 x 15.5 inches to the outer border edge. Priced based on condition, rarity, etc.
