Note: The centerfold (not shown) is a 4 page map headed: "Map of The Southern States..." showing the majority of the country with much detail, and includes vignettes in the corners of Abraham Lincoln, General McClellan, General Scott, and Seward. However, this map which is quite rare (especially in good condition), if present, is not typically in good condition. When maps in good condition are found, they are sold separately at a price that reflects their condition. THIS FOUR PAGE MAP TYPICALLY APPEARS AS TWO SEPARATE LEAVES due to the binding and trimming process, and often has archival mends. Inquire if an intact map is required.
