O.W. Gray. “Maine.”
Philadelphia: O.W. Gray, ca. 1875. 14 ¾ x 11 ¾. Map extends beyond frame line into margin. Lithograph. Original hand color. Very good condition.
A nicely detailed map of Maine showing counties, towns, canals, roads, railroads & topography 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. A similar map of both New Hampshire and Vermont is on the reverse.
