A well-loved atlas came into the studio a couple of weeks ago in need of some serious repair. The project is not currently taking on private work but once the 3-year project completes at the end of 2011 the plan is to keep the studio running as a commercial business. As a result several leads have been followed to make our services known to institutions and individuals in the area in preparation for this change.
While Alessandro was carrying out the initial assessment of the book he came across the map of the United States, or in the case of this atlas, The United States and Texas! Here are a couple of images of a US map as illustrated in this 1855 National Atlas of Historical, Commercial, and Political Geography.
