The Presidents of the United States. P.S. Duval. Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, 1846.

A rare and handsome example of a Presidential wall hanging. It was produced in Philadelphia by two important figures involved in American publishing: S. Augustus Mitchell, the leading map publisher of the time, and P.S. Duval, the preeminent lithographer of the day. It includes portraits of the first eleven Presidents, surrounding a shield with the crests of the 28 states (including Texas, admitted the year before this print was published).

Nebraska and Kansas. J.H. Colton. New York, J.H. Colton, 1854.

The first map to show the newly created territories of Nebraska and Kansas, issued the year of the Nebraska-Kansas Act and one of the most attractive maps of the American Plains States. It shows the two territories, as well as surrounding areas with impressive detail, based to a great extent of the latest military surveys. This map came out just at the beginning of the great plains settlement and development and the map shows the locations of towns and proposed routes for the trans-continental railroad, as well as the Santa Fe and Oregon trails. Missions, rivers, and the myriad Indian tribes are also detailed. Of particular note are a number of wonderful western vignettes of Indians, wildlife and a wagon train, these ornamental features adding to the decorative border and bright hand color. In the lower part of the map are an inset of North America and one showing the Gadsden Purchase of 1854.
