1871 AMERICAN UNION RAILROAD & WEST INDIES MAP
1871 AMERICAN UNION RAILROAD & WEST INDIES MAP
The American Union Railroad Map Of The United States, British Possessions, West Indies, Mexico, And Central America. 1871.

"This is a reworking of the Lubrecht and Rosa map ""The American Continent"" of 1864, and the first edition, first issue in a new format. Statistics at the top of the 1864 map are here replaced with a view ""From the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean"" emphasizing the recently completed transcontinental railroad. Also, an elaborate title and view of a steam engine and train station have replaced the more subdued 1864 title. Population tables of the United States are added to the left and right sides of the map. The map itself has been updated to show political and some topographical changes of the ensuing seven years. Projected railroad lines are shown running everywhere in the west. The coloring is very bright, to match the decidedly optimistic (expansionist) flavor of the map. D.L. Guernsey published editions of 1871 and 1874 in Concord New Hampshire, with no major changes in the map. WH has an 1873 edition by Haasis and Lubrecht that adds text next to the population figures, more railroads, no changes in topography. Issued in a cover with a label in German from Wilhelm Lubrecht in Stuttgart, Germany, indicating it may have been sold to emigrants. Full color. Map has green paper edging, is dissected into 16 sections, and fold into a new gray cloth folding case with ""American Union Railroad Map Haasis & Lubrecht 1871"" stamped in gilt on the spine."
