Detailed Product Description



This hand-colored chart has fire spewing out of many volcanoes. We have 2 versions of this chart available. In this one, the Volcanos of the world are spewing fire in hand colored technicolor, with yellow, red and orange flames belching from the summits. 

In the standard version, the volcanoes are hand colored colored like other mountains, in the pastels of red, blue, green and tan that were standard for most maps of this era. 

Johnson or Colton, c.1860-1870. 16'' x 25''.  In the 19th century the exploration of the world was reaching its ultimate conclusion. The worlds great rivers were being explored and mapped, and the world's mountains were being located, mapped and climbed. These discoveries resulted in many maps and atlases being produced. Each year new discoveries were updated. 

This period also was just before the printing presses of the world gained the ability to print in more than one color at a time. So to enhance the appearance of these new maps and charts, color was added by hand. You can imagine the printing factories in America and other countries employing women, for the first time, at wages that are embarrassing to even read about today. But those ladies did excellent work!

This is an extremely attractive chart of all the world's known mountains, with a key to their names on a separate sheet. Kunchinjinga, Killamandjaro, Mont Blanc, Tupungata and St Elias are the continental winners.  Maps of this age are adorable for their being so close to right, but not quite there yet! 

We are offering several different real antiquarian maps, and charts of mountains that compare their altitudes. These are originals, over 140 years old, not modern copies and make excellent wall hangings in your library.

As rare maps and charts are shipped in a mailing tube and cannot be put in the same parcel as a book. If you are also ordering books there will be an additional postage charge for sending them in a sturdy mailing tube.
