"Map of the City of Washington in the District of Columbia. U. States of America," by Casimir Bohn.
This map was published inside "Bohn's Hand-Book of Washington." Published in 1856, the "Hand-Book" was a terrific pocket map and tourist guide for the nation`s capital city. The map, found tipped into the back of Bohn’s book, is surrounded with reference tables and information useful to tourists. It identifies block numbers, wards, and built-up areas of Washington, DC during a period of great growth and expansion.
The map extends as far west as Georgetown, with its own list of highlights and businesses. It is embellished with a beautiful compass rose and a large vignette of the Capitol building at lower right.
This wonderfully descriptive travel map is tastefully and archivally presented with acid-free matting in a custom built frame.
