1872 Map of Oregon by Asher & Adams

1872 Map of Oregon by Asher & Adams


Gorgeous early map of Oregon from Asher & Adams’ Atlas published in 1872. All the color was added by hand after printing. Note the wide swaths of open lands in the eastern part of the state.

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”
