“North Polar Chart.” Philadelphia: W.M. Bradley & Bro., 1889. Folio. Lithograph. Original hand color. Tears along top center fold, reinforced with archival tape. Else, very good condition.
A precisely detailed map from the Philadelphia publishing firm of William M. Bradley & Bro. While Philadelphia was no longer the main center of cartographic publishing in North America by the late nineteenth century, many fine maps were still produced there, as is evidenced by this map. Topography, political information and physical features are all presented precisely and clearly.
