I am a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews. This is the cheapest place to buy my maps.

Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs. Learn more about how we source maps that you can't buy anywhere else.

This rather unusual map of the United States was engraved by British engraver John Rapkin and published by J. Tallis & Co in 1851.

The USA was going through a lot of flux back in the 1850s, with most state borders no where near their present day locations.

This map would make a great birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Texas or perhaps from the western states - which was the giant Missouri Territory back in 1851. The Missouri Territory, a few years earlier, was known as the Louisiana Purchase.

Texas was much larger in 1851. Later some of its land would be carved off into New Mexico. To the north is the Western Territory, which would later become Oklahoma and part of Kansas.

Nebraska is hugely elongated, spanning all the way from Canada to the Western Territory. Nowadays there's two Dakotas and Kansas in the same space.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame, or if you'd like to frame one of the larger maps. We use super-clear perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

On the left and right sides of the map are busts of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Lovely, detailed engravings of the Washington Monument and some scenes of a buffalo hunt are around the edges of the map.

My museum-quality maps are made on thick and durable matte paper. Add a wonderful accent to your room and office with these vintage map prints that are sure to brighten any environment.
