We have a set of antique relief maps from 1899, one is South America, and the other North America. This item is North America's map.
They were made by Central School Supply House, of Chicago, a well known globe and map maker in the late 1800's. The relief is high and bold, and major, and minor, cities, rivers, lakes, mountain ranges, and landmarks are indicated. Also indicated are the bay and inlet names. These maps are quite rare and hard to come by, and are a true collector's item.
Both maps have identical, original wood frames and metal plaques, and measure 34" x 48".
They likely taught your Great Grandparents their geography lessons!
*This map back shows some water damage, mostly on the back; but upon closer examination, some is also slightly visible on the front around the top of the map near the frame edge. None is on the relief part. There was also a repair made to in the upper right section from a small puncture, but the repair is good, and not very noticeable at all. We will try to provide macro shots of this damage.
Shipping is charged at actual cost, and added to the purchase price.
