1887 Ribbon Map by Willard Glazier
Father of Waters

Limited Edition Color Print $24.95


This reproduction of a rare Mississippi River "ribbon map" was drawn by Captain Willard Glazier to "prove" his premise that the True Source of the Mississippi was Lake Glazier rather than Lake Itasca. Looking for modern day towns on an old map? Many modern-day towns are included in this. It also contains many towns noted no longer appear on maps, like Waterproof...which wasn't!

LES ETATS UNIS  (The United States)
L'Amerique Septentrionale
Partie Occidentale
Par (by) M. BONNE  Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine.
 

Gift Print Price: $36.00
 

 

  All French, good detail from Lac Superieur to the mouths of the Mississippi. To south, it shows Ft. de la Pointe Coupee, R. Rouge, Ft. des Natches, Ft. St. Pierre and mentions Ft. Rosalie without the usual annotation that the Fort was destroyed (seen in our maps dated 1756 or later).

In the north it shows a very large Lac Rouge, Saute St. Antoine (St. Anthony Falls), Fort St. Nicolas near the Ouisconsing (Wisconsin) R., etc. 

Good detail on Fort S. Philippe, Cahokias, and several lead mines in the Ste. Genevieve area. Good detail on the Ohio River and it's tributaries. Good detail of the Apalachian Mountains, Georgie, Cherokee country, etc.  

More detail East of the Mississippi than West (although there is good detail for inland Minnesota). Unlike any other map, it shows the Mississippi going towards inland Minnesota and notes that the source is UNKNOWN.

The maps are beautifully hand-tinted in color and in brown tones. The print on the smaller size is readable, but the larger size is much easier to read.

For detail of the upper River, Minnesota, and east to Michigan and the Appalachian mountains, these maps are my favorites.
