This is a spectacular antique map from 1860 of North America and its political divisions, along with "Recent discoveries in the polar regions". Does that say "British America" over Canada? And Alaska noted as "Russian America". Wow! What a throwback.
Published by Mitchell Maps in 1860, it reflects the beautiful borders that are a trademark of a Mitchell. We love the way the engraver broke the border for "Russian America". A fantastic piece of history.
