Rio Colorado Geologic 1858 Map


Rio Colorado Geologic 1858 Map

This beautiful map was the result of an exploration under the direction of the Office of Explorations and Surveys headed by 1st. Lieut. Joseph C. Ives in 1858. The map was drawn by Frhr. F. W.v. Egloffstein, the topographer to the expedition, who used a unique engraving process that resulted in the stunning rendering of the topographic features.

      We consider these maps to be works of art, so we print and frame them accordingly. We offer two choices of print surfaces: fine-art archival paper and stretched canvas. Fine art paper prints do not come framed unless you add a frame to your order.

      Every map is custom printed. We have no inventory. Only when we receive your order do we produce your print on our 12-color giclée printer, using top-quality archival inks that will never fade.

      Fine Art Paper- Our archival paper is museum-quality, 100% cotton, acid-free, and certified to last 100 years. This assures sharp details, true colors, and exceptional durability.

      Canvas Gallery Wrap-If you prefer a frameless look, order your map on stretched canvas, which offers a bit more depth and texture. We use archival canvas, gallery-wrapped and varnished, stretched onto a 1.5-inch-thick wood frame.
