    Description

    1863 Commercial Map of Gettysburg Battlefield With Booklet. Ditterline, Theodore, Sketch of the Battles of Gettysburg with an Explanatory Map, (New York: C. A. Alford, 1863), 24 pp., blue cloth wrap, 7.25" x 5", plus colored map opening to approximately 16" x 19.5", the top margin of map and booklet's front endpaper are inscribed "Andrew W. Blocher Co. K 1st Regt P R I." The map, now under a framed archival mat, exhibits even browning, a few small splits and smoothed fold creases. The accompanying booklet is in fair condition only as it lacks the back cover and suffers considerable loss along it open edge. Accompanying this lot is a 20th century genealogical note stating, among other things, that the map's original owner, Andrew Blocher, died in 1905. His regiment of Pennsylvania Reserve Infantry was at Gettysburg and would serve with the Army of the Potomac until June, 1864. His Gettysburg booklet and map are extraordinary in that they were available to the public a scant three months after the battle.
