Description

With additions to 1895. This large chart shows virtually all of the Pacific Coast of North America in excellent detail inland as far as Denver. It covers all of Southern Alaska on the eve of the Klondike Gold Rush. Very few settlements of any kind are yet shown in Alaska, and the boundary with Canada is sketchily laid down.

The railroad network for the Western United States in shown in detail. In addition to the Union and Central Pacific, the Northern Pacific appears, as well as a web of lines in the Central Valley of California.

This was a working chart, used on board an unidentified ship. The route of a voyage (June-July 1895) from San Francisco to south of the equator is laid down in pencil and red ink.

Condition Description

Cloth-backed, some soiling, but overall a very good example with manuscript additions.
