This is an original antique map of Pennsylvania Virginia Delaware and Maryland published by Johnson and Browning out of New York in 1861.
The map is color coded by county with townships also identified and shows railroads, wagon roads, rivers, canals, mountains, ports, large towns, and villages of the mid-19th century. The map is embellished with lovely vignettes of the University of Virginia, the Dismal Swamp Canal, and the City of Baltimore. The time of printing is worth noting as the American Civil War has just officially begun and many bloody battles would be fought in the region.
Condition: This map is in A condition with bold original color on fine paper with ample margins on all sides. A small fold separation at the bottom center of the map has been reinforced on the verso with archival materials.
