Frank A. Gray. “Gray’s New Map of the United States.”
Philadelphia: O.W. Gray, 1881. 16 ¾ x 27 ½. Lithograph. Original hand color. Chip in bottom margin. Old tape on verso. Small chip in bottom margin. Very good condition.
A nicely detailed map by the Philadelphia firm of O.W. Gray and Son. The firm began its publishing around mid-century and produced regional and U.S. atlases up to the 1880s. This map is typical of their work, and its attractive presentation and interesting detail make it a nice example of late nineteenth century Philadelphia cartography. There are two inset maps of Alaska and a Sketch Exhibiting the Westward movement of the center of Population. Also shown is the Dakota Territory and all of present day Oklahoma as “Indian Territory.”
