Description: (MISSISSIPPI RIVER). Coloney, Myron; and Fairchild, Sidney B. Ribbon Map of the Father of Waters. Hand-colored lithographed strip map on five joined sheets, backed with linen and rolling into its original oak cylinder spool case. 131x2 1/2 inches map size, 3x2 inches case size; small areas of loss at lower end, case with one dowel cap missing, overall survives extremely well. St. Louis: Gast, Moeller & Co., 1866

Notes: As it unspools to nearly 11 feet, the map takes a continuous journey upriver following the entire 2600 mile course of the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico to its source at Lake Itaska, Minnesota. Many of the details shown along the way include plantations, towns, forts, landings and mileage indication the farther one travels from the Delta. Well preserved in its beautiful original oak case. Holland, "The Mississippi River in Maps and Views," pp. 173, 176-177.
