Lower Canada East Quebec Montreal St. Lawrence 1850 old Cowperthwait mapAntiqueMapsPrints.com
Formerly Lower Canada
(Quebec / Ontario / Three Rivers / Nova Scotia / St. Lawrence River / etc.)
Issued Philadelphia, 1850 by Thomas, Cowperthwait.
Lovely antique lithographed map with strong original hand color. Unique age pationa to the color, an age toned hue virtually to recreate today, especially the yellows which are now near golden in color.
Inset lower right of Nova Scotia & New Brunswick near Gulf of St. Lawrence.
In near VG or better condition, minor light surface age wear and toning as typical, some faint minor touces of foxing in the blank margins, overall the image is remarkably clean, well preserved and very attractive.
