Population tables, statistics, etc. Highly detailed map showing railroads and counties and cities in the eastern part of the U.S. and Canada. Has "United States" on the cover and is the companion map to the Map of the Western States... with "Territories" (see #2539.000) on its cover. Copyright date is 1871. For some reason, Modelski does not list all these early Watson maps, but only a few maps dated 1874 and later, perhaps Watson did not deposit all his maps with the LOC.

Case Map
Authors Lubrecht, Charles, Rosa, R.
Full Title (Covers to) The American Continent. Topographical and railroad map of the United States, British Possessions, West Indies, Mexico and Central America. Compiled from the best authorities, by R. Rosa, late Col. 46th Regt. N.Y.S. Vol. Published by Ch. Lubrecht & Co., 12 Frankfort Street, New York. 1864. Agents For Great Britain: Bacon & Co., 48 Paternoster Row, London, England. For Germany, Switzerland And Italy: Fr. Volkmar, Leipsic. Lubrecht & Co., Stuttgart. Revised Edition. Entered ... 1864, by Ch. Lubrecht & Co. ... New York. (with) Central America.
Note 1st edition. 2nd edition was1865, another edition in 1869 (Karrow 1-1683). German edition published in 1864. (Karrow 1-1655). Inset of Central America, text on top of map describing British American Possessions, Time Tables, and U.S. Census for 1860. We can find no earlier edition of this map, so the "Revised Edition" is puzzling. Lubrecht lists three foreign publishers for this map: Bacon in London, Volkmar in Leipsic, and Lubrecht & Co. in Stuttgart. An edition in German is described in Karrow. Later, this map became the more elaborate 1871 "American Union Railroad Map of the United States..." by Hassis & Lubrecht, also published by D.L. Gurnsey (see our copy, WH's copy, and Heaston Cat. 19 for a reproduction). The Proposed transcontinental railroad is shown going south of Salt Lake City, Wyoming is still part of Dakota, and a Proposed Southern Pacific Railroad runs from Fort Smith to Sacramento. Full color by state. Map is dissected into 24 sections and mounted on linen. Folded into black paper covered boards 24.5x21 with "The American Continent" stamped in gilt. Relief shown by hachures.
