O.W. Gray. “United States of America.”
Philadelphia: O.W. Gray, ca.1876. 15 ¾ x 26 ¾. Lithograph. Original hand color. Very good condition. With inset map of Alaska.
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. The Dakota Territory and all of present day Oklahoma as “Indian Territory” is shown.
