“Tunison’s North Carolina.” From Tunison’s Peerless Universal Atlas. Chicago, 1883. Cerograph. 9 3/4 x 12 1/2. Very good condition.
A handsome map from Tunison’s Peerless Universal Atlas. With the development of wax engraving (cerography), more maps and atlases were able to be produced in cities beyond the major centers of New York, Philadelphia and Chicago. Henry C. Tunison issued a series of fine atlases beginning in 1883 and lasting into the beginning of the twentieth century. This is a nice example of his output. Of some interest is the note about the construction of the Eads jetties.
