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 Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty.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

This reproduction print of the 1876 Rocky Mountains map was originally two pages that have been combined into one map. It was one part of a series of maps that made up the Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel. The Geologist in charge of this work was Clarence King and was originally published by Julius Bien. The series of 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. Does not include frame.

      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.

    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! The colors and history behind this map really sold me and it has held up to me expectations.
