One of the most interesting and attractive 19th century wall maps of North America. Published in 1856 by Jacob Monk, this large and beautiful wall map, details much of North America from the southern border of Canada to Central America, the West Indies, and the northwestern parts of South America. Details the United States in full as well as parts of modern day Canada. Shows North America during an important period of territorial and cultural expansion following the Mexican-American war and during height of the California Gold Rush. Attempts to illustrate the shipping lanes along both the east and west coasts with numerous vignettes showing sailing ships. A large inset map in the lower left quadrant shows the world on a Mercator Projection. To the right of this is a chart detailing the towns and counties of the United States. Surrounded by an elaborate decorative border with a floral, almost baroque motif. All in all an extremely beautiful and interesting wall map of North America. This is the kind of map that can stand up to lengthy perusal.
