In the (faded) original hard cover binder. The map is printed in at least 5 colors. Very attractive, but with some flaws. There is separation of about an inch at two of the folds (where two folds intersect) , and about 3" at a fold on the bottom right corner, and "pinhole" separations at several others. Unfortunately, while a very attractive & colorful map, someone has used ink to mark their trip from St. Joseph (on the Kansas/Missouri border) to San Francisco. Lots of colorful graphics, including various ships scattered on the oceans, list of presidents, census figures, a nifty chart of times & distances relative to Washington, D. C. , lady Liberty riding an eagle & waving a flag, etc. Even with the defects, I have to say this is one cool map. I find no record of this edition of this map, although I do find several of the later 1873 reprint. ; 48x40"
