Map of Colorado.
Louis Nell was the cartographic engine behind the Wheeler expedition of the American West. Spanning from Colorado to California, from Idaho to New Mexico, and all points in between, they documented the rugged and diverse terrain of the West. After his time with Wheeler was finished, he was free to move anywhere and chose to settle in Colorado. He set up shop in Denver and began producing the best reference maps of the time for the still very young state.
Here a large hand colored map of the state showing the roads, railroads, towns, major terrain, drainages and a bit of land quality. An amazing reference.
Condition is good and has been professionally restored and backed. Image size is approximately 31.25 x 40 (inches)
