Cordilleras 1876 Topographic Map

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 Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty.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 1876 Cordilleras Topographic map in our Historic Series. 

This is a reproduction print of a map of the Western United States showing the geographical boundaries of the five maps of the Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel. The Geologist in charge of this work was Clarence King which was originally published by Julius Bien. The maps show a continuous belt of mountains and plateaus from 104 degrees longitude to 120 degrees, and 170 miles north to south.

    • 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. 

      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.

      We were looking for a piece which would compliment a complex room with many textures and colors and which would also bring a sense of history of the area. This map was exactly perfect - vivid colors and superior paper quality. We have recommended Muir Way to other designer friends and will be back for more ideas.
