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 Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty.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.

        Great Quality and Service

        My original order was damaged by UPS and wasn't delivered. It was easy to get in touch with Muir Way customer service and they quickly shipped out another order. Their response time was quick and the overall experience was great. The map itself is beautiful and I was really impressed with the paper quality. It feels and looks great! I bought this map along with the 1876 Rocky Mountains Geological Map, and I can't wait to hang them up together on my wall.

        Unique and Timeless

        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.
