Two great maps on the Crimean War...
Item # 675875
December 03, 1854
NEW ORLEANS DAILY DELTA, Louisiana, Dec. 3, 1854
* Two great maps on the Crimean War
* Sevastopol Ukraine
* Rare antebellum title from the deep South
Almost the entire front page is taken up with reports on the Crimean War, with items headed: "Sevastopol Retaken" "Position of the Allies" "The Attack on Sevastopol" and more.
The prime feature of the ftpg. is a detailed map headed: "MAP OF THE SEAT OF WAR--Military Position of the Allied Forces Before Sevastopol".
But of greater significance is the terrific & very unusual page 2 engraving--simply huge taking over half of the page--headed: "MAP OF SEVASTOPOL" which rather than a map is actually a 3 dimensional engraving of the town & port showing ships in the bay, location of the town, & much more. There is a key at the bottom of the map. This map measures 11 by 16 inches.
Complete in 8 pages, light browning throughout with some spotting & light damp staining, generally in nice condition. A bit irregular at the spine margin.
