This genuine, interesting and scarce antique map of North America (Amerique Septentrionale) with original hand colouring is by Victor Levasseur and is from the Atlas Universel Illustre which was published in Paris in c1845 and is one of the finest decorative atlases of the 19th century.

This fascinating map is wonderfully decorated and depicts the American continent as it existed in 1845.
