RAILROAD & STEAMSHIP LINES NORTH AMERICA

"Correct Map of the Railway & Steamship Lines operated by the Southern Pacific Company"

A historically important railway map of the United States of America south of the 45th parallel north from Portland, OR to the state of Maine.

The map extends south well into Mexico, shows the entire Gulf of Mexico including Cuba and the large Steamship lines along the Atlantic Coast and within the Gulf of Mexico operated by Southern Pacific.

With a large inset county map of Texas and 2 small inset maps of Los Angeles, CA and of San Francisco, CA.

In the upper left is the twon of Kalama, Washington.

The additional title in the Italian language reflects on the large numbers of Italian immigrants towards the end of the 19th century. (There was also an identical map issued with a German title for the largest non English speaking immigrant group).

Lithograph issued by Poole Brothers. Chicago, ca. 1885

This Railroad map shows the immense network of railroads, which had already been spun clear across the United States on behalf of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company. The map is extraordinarily detailed naming all stations along the various operated lines. Hatchings show mountain ranges.

This Railway map was part of an advertising brochure with time tables for departures and arrivals as well as all travel information necessary and desirable for especially the (Italian) traveler. It was issued by the Southern Pacific Company in cooperation with the printing outfit Pool Brothers in Chicago.

Condition: As part of the above described brochure the large map had to be folded several times vertically and horizontally. As the map was obviously used it was unfolded often. This left some traces of usage.

Some of the folds were in danger of braking. Therefore some folds were backed for support very carefully with thin paper. We show scans of the reverse side. In some of the crossings of folds small holes are covered under the backing paper. The margins are narrow all around. Some have small tears. And the left margin, where the mad had been fastened to the brochure, has been widened with thin paper. There are some other traces of age and use which we are zealous to document with scans. The condition in general is surprisingly good considering age, handling and the thin paper it was printed upon.

An interesting item with regard to railways in the USA.

"Die neuwen Inseln so hinder Hispanien gegen Orient bey dem land Indie ligen"

Early map of the Americas. Woodcut published in "Cosmographia" by Sebastian Munster (1488-1552).

This woodcut is from a German edition of the "Cosmographia"

printed in Basel, 1553.

"The "New World", still oddly shaped before mapping got more precise. We have to realize, that the discovery of America was just about half a century before this map was carved into a woodblock and published. But that's the charm of very early map making! In the Caribbean Sea some of the islands were already named and placed fairly accurately: Cuba, Jamaica, Hispaniola. Sciana (now Puerto Rico) carries the pennant of Spain. On the North American (US)-mainland we have only Florida named and shown much larger than the State of Florida comprises in modern times.

For the first time on a map the Pacific Ocean is named as such: Mare pacificum. While South America is definitely recognizable (even the Magellan Strait is mapped), the West Coast of North America is totally undiscovered. An interesting marginal note is the placing and naming of Japan. Japan is shown as one island quite near to North America and iras name is "Zipangri". Name and placement were taken from a globe produced by Johannes Schoener, which is a precious piece of art at the Germanic National Museum in Nuremberg.

Condition: Woodcut has typical but new hand coloring. There is general light age toning. Margins all around show traces of age and use. Lower margin has reinforcements for no obvious reasons, applied probably centuries ago. A slightly visible crease through the Atlantic in lower right corner. Considering the age of the print, it condition is much better than good.

"Virginiae Item et Floridae Americae Provinciarum nova Descriptio".

Very attractively hand-colored copper etching. This map was first published in the Mercator/Hondius atlas. Amsterdam, 1606. Our exemplar has French text on reverse side, indicating, that it was published in 1628. Flanking the Renaissance style ornamental title cartouche are two Native American villages: On the left one in Florida, on the right one in Virginia. A native American royal couple is depicted on the left of map. And in the Atlantic a manned boat with Native Americans is shown.

The focus of this map is the area of nowadays Georgia and the Carolinas. But its actually reaches from St. Augustin, FL to Chesapeak Bay. We have to consider, that this map was printed exactly 170 years before the Declaration of Independence. Pioneer discoverers where Spanish, geographers, explorers still fumbled when they cartographed this new land. The map shows many Native American and Spanish place names. Sea monsters, sail ships, a compass rose and another Renaissance cartouche complete this highly decorative, importantly early American map, which is so innocently charming.

Centerfold has repairs. There is a vertical pleat on the right of centerfold. General age toning and some traces of age and use in margins. Very tiny repaired tears on margin edge. In general, and considering its age, the condition of this early map is very good.

"Carte de la Cote N.O. de L'Amerique et de la cote N.E. de l'Asie"

Chart of the North West Coast of America and of the North East Coast of Asia (Russia)

Copper etching by Jacques Francois Benard

Published in Paris, 1785

This map was published as an account of the thrid voyage of James Cook which led him to the North Pacific. The progress of his voyage is shown in great detail, thus being the first map of that region. In so far this map, which makes no visual impression on map collectors used to colorful showing of the world, is still of immense importance for the mapping of that region. When Cook arrived at Nootka, for example, he had no idea that he actually had reached the western coast of Vancouver Island. But his sailing has been minutely documented.

Map was published in a quart-size book. Hence there are several horizonte and vertical folds to make the map fit book size. It shows some small traces of age and use. But in general it is in good condition.

Author: Jacob von Sandrart (1630-1708)

Engraver: Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724)

Published separately in Nuremberg, ca. 1697

Map is embellished with indigenous animals of North America, Slave punishment, a battle scene of natives in Brazil, rich sail ship traffic on Atlantic and Pacific, a vague coast line idea of Australia.

Both, Sandrart and Homann were at the crest of German map makers as the center of gravity with regard to map making shifted from Amsterdam to Nuremberg and Augsburg.
