Carte des parties nord et ouest de l'Amerique - Maker: Vaugondy
Antique uncolored map of North America by Vaugondy, 1772. This is a later edition of Samuel Engel's map of 1764 which is notable for its speculative cartography of the western portion of North America.

Other notable features include the legendary city of Quivira, a huge body of water called Lac Michinipi in modern Canada, and an enlarged and imagined Pacific Northwest. The text in the lower left translates to "City of Tahuglauks is according to the description of Baron de la Hontan and may have been taken by some modern geographies for Quivira, to which they give the same position on the alleged West Sea." Overall very good condition with folds as issued. Some additional folds, light image transfer, small spots, and tight margin on the lower left side. Approx. 12 x 14.5 inches to the neatline.

Antique hand-colored Civil War battle map published by the US War Department. Shown on this map is the area around Vicksburg, Mississippi, where an important battle of the American Civil War took place. In May and June of 1863, Maj. Gen. Ulysses S.

This was the culmination of one of the most brilliant military campaigns of the war. With the loss of Pemberton’s army and this vital stronghold on the Mississippi, the Confederacy was effectively split in half.

Shown on this map is the area around North Anna River, Virginia, where an inconclusive battle of the American Civil War took place. "After the fighting at Spotsylvania Court House, Grant continued his Overland Offensive against Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. He was brought up short on the North Anna River by Lee’s widely studied “hog snout line,” which forced Grant to divide his army into three parts in order to attack. On May 23, 1864, one of A.P. Hill’s divisions assaulted the V Corps which had crossed the river at Jericho Mill, resulting in bloody see-saw fighting. On the 24th, Union infantry was repulsed at Ox Ford (the snout) but advanced to near the Doswell House on the Confederate right. Lee hoped to strike an offensive blow, but he was ill, and the opportunity for defeating an isolated part of the Federal army passed. Once the threat of Lee’s position was revealed, Grant withdrew both wings of the army back across the North Anna River. Grant outflanked the position by moving downstream and continued his advance on Richmond." (source: nps.gov) This map shows Federal works in blue and Rebel works in red. This map is dated 1867 and engraved by Bien. Very good restored condition with some repaired tears and repaired paper loss in upper right corner. This map has been archivally cleaned, deacidified, and rebacked. Measures approx. 15.5 x 18.75 inches to the neatline.

A Map of the Town of Chatham, Mass. - Maker: Eldridge
Antique uncolored 1890 folding map of Chatham, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, by George Eldridge. This unusual map was developed by the Hotel Chatham to give to their guests. Key landmarks, streets, the Chatham Railroad, and businesses of the time are indicated. The Chatham Hotel was Chatham's first luxury hotel, developed a little before its time. In an age before cars, it was necessary to take a 3 mile wagon ride from the nearest train station to reach the property. One story is that even before reaching the hotel, many visitors declared that they would never suffer the bumpy wagon ride over sandy roads again. The severe economic recession of 1893 lead to the failure of the elegant hotel after only about 3 years. Fortunately for Chatham and its fine lodging, transportation has changed a lot since then. In very good overall restored antique condition. It has been de-acidified, cleaned, and backed with light-weight tissue. It comes with a booklet (not attached to the map). Measures approx. 28.25 x 26.25 inches to the neatline.
