The Stanford's Map of North America is from a fascinating series of reproductions from our Edward Stanford Cartographic Collection archive. Originally published in 1884, this map features bright colors highlighting international borders, with corresponding coloring indicating state/provincial borders within USA, Canada and Mexico. Plain background with hachure for mountain ranges makes the place names marked on the map easy to read. Several mountain peaks, mainly in USA, are shown with heights (in feet). In common with other map published by Stanfords around that time, numerous smaller rivers are named. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 5° intervals. Whilst at the first glance there have been few significant changes in the international boundaries. Panama is still shown as part of Colombia plus Greenland and Iceland are in Danish colors, internal administrative border provide much interesting detail. In the US all the states which acceded to the Union after the map's publication date are already there, but with the Dakotas as one state and Oklahoma shown as the Indian Territory and its panhandle as separate Public Lands.
