    Rare Kansas Map

Measuring approximately 28" x 27" overall and folded into the original blind-stamped brown cloth covers with titles stamped in gilt. Advertisements on the inside front cover. The map caption reads, in full: "Gunn & Mitchell's new Map of Kansas and the Gold Mines Embracing All the Public Surveys Up to 1862 Comiled From the Original Field Notes by O.B. Gunn and D. T. Mitchell, Lecompton, K[ansas] 1862". The map bears the lithographer's name, "Wm Schuchman" of Philadelphia. The borders are colored. The front cover is detached, still the map remains in nice condition with some closed tears at the mounting point to the rear cover and a few small holes in the intersection of the folds.
