This edition has NO centrefold which makes it more desirable for collectors and therefore, demands a slightly higher price than other publications! This map is from the last highly decorative atlas produced in the Victorian era. The map is surrounded by scroll work and depicting various vignettes, showing topographcal views, costumes and customs, and general scenes. In this map, we see: Gold Seekers on their way over the Cordillera; The Fort of Chagres. The ?proposed? Railway and Canal are drawn in. [ref: 1060 ]
