Print Description

Customaps offers this beautiful map of the United States and Territories, together with Canada. A fine example of Mitchell’s 1866 map of the United States. This map covers the entirety of the continental United States along with parts of Canada and Mexico. It depicts the country in considerable detail with notations regarding railroads, mail routes (including the famed Pony Express Routes), emigrant routes westward, topographical, and political details. Represents the 1866 state of the map in which the Western states are presented in an early ephemeral configuration. Arizona, for example, contains what is today the southern extension of Nevada, including Las Vegas, which is noted. An inset map in the lower right quadrant focuses on the Island of Newfoundland – an important site for the American cod fishing industry in the 19th century. One of the most attractive American atlas maps of the United States to appear in the mid-19th century. Features the floral border typical of Mitchell maps from the 1860-65 period.

Our wall murals are made of a self-adhesive thin polyester fabric material. They have the look and feel of a very thin canvas and do not require use of wallpaper paste or any extra glue for hanging. Our map murals can easily be removed, leaving no trace or sticky residue on 99% of any surface! They can be moved and re-applied over and over again, as the adhesive does not weaken or strengthen over time. Stick your map for a day – or stick it for a decade – still removes with no issues. Our material is green, nontoxic and safe. We protect them with a transparent laminate, which allows you to clean your map with a damp sponge.

Note: it is recommended to apply your wall mural on LOW or NO VOC paints.
