Note:
Large hand colored and very detailed map of the United States and part of Canada. Up to date in the west, showing an extraordinary number of towns in California and Nevada. Topography is clearly delineated and Railroads are shown are far as they had been developed. Even Colorado is shown as a State (which occurred in 1876). Inset map of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. There is a quote from Stansbury regarding the desert outside of Salt Lake City (a bit out of date, but shows attention to detail). The map makers certainly used the most current U.S. government maps as sources. On the verso is the label of Lanee, successor of Longuet, a Paris map seller, with Etats Unis in pen. Full color by state. Map is dissected into 40 sections, and edged and backed with linen. Folds into a new blue cloth folding case 25x17 with "United States Stanford 1875" stamped in gilt on the spine.
