RARE ORIGINAL US GOVERNMENT MAP
ENGRAVING COPPER PLATES 1880-1950


These rare master engraving plates, hand etched beginning 1880 to 1950, were used to produce early government maps of various regions in the United States.

Each plate (produced in mirror image for printing purposes) was carefully etched by a cartographic engraver, and contains historic and scientific information. The extraordinary crispness of these master sets has been preserved, as these master plates themselves were not actually used to make the maps, but instead, were transferred to lithographic stones in order make to make multiple prints.

These stunning copper engraving plates are truly a part of American history and are on display in many museums. They are both historical records and veritable works of art.
