North America Geologic Map 1911

1911 Geologic Map of North America

We love old maps. Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty. If you share our love for vintage maps, you’ll appreciate this Geologic map of North America originally printed in 1911.

In conjunction with the Geologic Survey of Canada and the Instituto Geologico de Mexico, the United States Geologic Survey constructed this composite geologic map of North America. The map was created under the supervision of Bailey Willis and George Stone. We've digitally restored this reproduction while keeping its vintage look and discoloration.

    • Made in the USA

      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. Does not come framed unless you add a frame to your order.

      Frame- Our thin hardwood frames are handmade from real Maple or Walnut, not pressed wood with veneer. Prints will come mounted behind a clear acrylic, with mounting hardware attached to it. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your frame to arrive.

      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.

      The World on a Quincuncial Projection

      ‘The World on a Quincuncial Projection,’ was my first purchase from Muir Way, and I’m a big fan now. This is a fantastic map. And the entire process, from purchase to receipt, was seamless.

      This was a birthday gift for my son. He has a new home and recently graduated with a geology degree so it was a perfect choice for him and his new home.

      North America 1912 USGS Map

      I recently purchased the North America 1912 USGS Map in Black with the walnut frame as a gift for my fiancee and WOW, I was beyond impressed with the beauty and elegance of this map. I highly recommend the framing. The quality and craftsmanship are superb and it framed the print so perfectly. In this case I think the black background and delicate white lines of the map go perfectly with the walnut option if you're going for a more elegant and elevated look. Needless to say, my fiancee LOVED his gift. I am now a Muir Way fan for life!

      Vintage Maps

      We've actually purchased three different maps from Muir Way and the paper quality and graphics are top notch. The maps are exactly as shown on their website. Paper is nice and thick. Will buy more.

      Love this map!!

      We are map lovers in my family and we all adore the San Francisco Chevalier Map from 1915! We live in San Francisco and really enjoy staring at this map and discovering new things in it. Muir Way managed to capture all the detail from the original map and maintain the high resolution. This time I opted to buy the map framed and the walnut frame is beautiful (note that it comes with plexiglas, not glass). This is the third map I have purchased from Muir Way and they have all exceeded my expectations (and I have very high standards).
