Note:
Very large hand colored map with detailed engraving. This does not look like the "normal" Rand McNally map - it is probably a separately made map that they acquired the rights to. This copy was sold in England by Edward Stanford and has his label on the case. Map is in four sheets, each dissected into 21 sections. With outline color by state, topography shown in brown, and railways and shipping routes in red. Sheets have marbled end papers with labels reading "North East", "North West", "South East" and "South West"; all fold into a brown cloth slip case 22.5x14.5 with a label reading "Mexico. London: Edward Stanford, Wholesale & Retail Mapseller, &c. 55, Charing Cross. Agent by Appointment ..." Relief shown by shading. Prime meridians: Washington and Greenwich.
