“Map of Asia.” From McNally’s System of Geography. New York, 1877. 8 3/4 x 10 1/2. Lithograph. Original hand color. Very good condition.
A detailed and interesting map from McNally’s System of Geography. This was a favorite book in many homes and schools in post-Civil War America and this is a nice example of why. Asia is shown with its countries, cities, rivers and railroads. In the upper left is a map of the middle east and in the lower left an inset of Japan. Of interest, the map gives an idea of the scale of the area shown by including a map of Ohio on the same scale.
