Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map

1838

Maker: Lapie.

Antique hand colored map of the world on Mercator's projection, by Lapie, 1838. Colored by continent. This map was made before the Gadsden Purchase and shows Mexico's land stretching into what is now part of the US. This map also shows very little knowledge of Antarctica, the North Pole, and also shows a large river through Greenland. Very good condition with two archivally repaired tears- one in the left margin, and one at the center of the map. Approx. 15.75 x21.5 inches to the neatlines.
