A legendary rarity, never before reprinted.

This map was originally issued by the Kansas Pacific Railway to show trail drivers the shortest route to their railhead.

The longhorn cartouche at lower left is unique in the map world.

Physical Details

  • 18 by 23 inches
  • Open Edition 
  • On 100% cotton watercolor paper
This is a high quality fine-art print.

The paper is acid free, cold press cotton watercolor with an elegant ever so lightly textured finish. This surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original map vividly, beautifully, and exactly.

The inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your map in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation it is the day it ships.

It's an instant heirloom. Get yours before they're gone...and get one to give to a friend. He'll owe you!
