Note:
Later edition, 1st ed. was 1863 (see our copy). Changes from the 1863 edition include: North and South American are now at the center of the map as opposed to the left side, many insets of cities, straits, islands, etc. are added, many more steamship lines and routes are shown, drift ice is indicated, and topography is updated in the western U.S. A dense and complicated map, more so, if that is possible, than the first edition. Printed in full color.
