  • Survey of the Geographical Distribution and Cultivation of the most Important Plants which are uses as food for man:...

    A great thematic world map showing the general distribution as it was at the time for the distribution of crops and agriculture. Still prior to the settlement of the western territories in the United States, little cultivation occurs west of the Mississippi River. Meticulously hand colored to identify many different cops from Barley and Oats to Rice, Maize and much more. Large insets at the bottom show plants found in different regions of the world, as well as maps for where Cocoa, Vanilla, Coffee, Tea and other produce can be found.

    Condition is very good. Image size is 19.75 X 23.25 (inches).
