1872 Map of Iowa by Asher & Adams

95.00

Gorgeous map of Iowa from Asher & Adams’ Atlas published in 1872. All the color was added by hand after printing.

Originally this edition was conceived as a Railroad Atlas, but is notable for its unique style and excellent large format treatment of the states west of the Mississippi.

Asher & Adams was one of the first companies to prominently exhibit railroad lines, even if this meant a slight reduction in topographical detail. The majority of the details shown are adjacent to the existing rail lines.

Map measures 24.5” x 17.5”
