A New Map of Arkansas
With its Canals, Roads & Distances.
Issued Philadelphia, 1850 by Cowperthwait.
Lovely antique lithographed map with original hand color.
Key running horizontally across top of the map explains distances along steam boat routes of travel. Thes include Little Rock, New Orleans, Fort Gibson & Pittsburg.
Sheet evenly moderately age toned imparting a nice subtle visual patina quality impossible to recreate today, hand coloring now richly age hued, particularly the yellows and pinks. Some typical minor light surface age wear, overall the image is clean, age toned but otherwise well preserved and very attractive.
Sheet measures c. 13 1/4" x 16 3/4"
Printed area measures c. 11 1/2" x 14 1/2"
