1843 British map (S.D.U.K.) of North and Central America with hand-colored borders. 13¼" x 16". A highly detailed map of the entire North American continent and Central America entitled simply "North America," printed in London for the Atlas of Atlases by the Society for Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (in operation from 1826 to 1846 "to provide improving information at affordable prices for people who would otherwise have been deprived of education"), excellent condition, curious in that Alaska is captioned as "Russian America," Canada is captioned as "British America," and Texas is delineated as a separate Republic.
