(VA.-Civil War) Map of Eastern Virginia


  • ~Catalog 63~
  • Map of Eastern Virginia Compiled from the Best Authorities and Printed at the Coast Survey Office..

    A large folding full chromolithographic map of eastern Virginia extending as far as west as Lexington, but also including all of Maryland and Delaware and portions of North Carolina, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, in original brown blindstamped pocket covers with gilt lettered front cover.

    This very scarce and attractive map shows all roads, cities, towns and localities together with principal drainages and mountain ranges. Existing railroads are boldly shown in red accompanied by an inset table of distances by rail. Distances from the capitol cities of Washington D.C. and Richmond, Virginia are shown using a system of concentric circles extending for 60 miles at 10 mile increments. It appears likely that these maps were used by Union officers for activities within rebel-held Virginia during the Civil War.

    Condition is very good, covers lightly rubbed. The map has been removed and professionally mounted on archival tissue for preservation and display. There are some scattered light toning spots in the left and right margins and a few prominent spots along the bottom margin, some of which enter the map image. Image size is approximately 18.75 x
    24 (inches)
