This is an ornate and highly decorative map of Central America. The steel engraved map extends from Mexico to Costa Rica and includes the proposed route for a rail and canal system between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It features three vignettes and fancy borders of the Tallis style: Volcano of Isalco, Great Square of the Antiqua in Guatemala, and a Belize beach scene. Engraved by J. Rapkin. Color outline.
