ANTIQUE CRAMS UNRIVALED FAMILY ATLAS OF THE WORLD 1899 EDITION. This is a truly fascinating atlas of the US and the world as it was in 1899. The information in the back is priceless for the time. Each issue of Cram's atlas was entered into the Library of Congress.It has 539 pages and measures 15" x 12". There is some wear and tear including scuffed corners as expected with age and use.
The front cover is a bit faded at the top but it does not carry over to the pages. All map plates in front have good color and appear suitable for framing.
Information in the back is intact with minimal issues. In 1875, the Cram Map Depot owned by George Cram begun publishing a wide range of atlases, including its Atlas of the World series. It was a series that, with several modifications and revisions, would remain in print for over 70 years.
