About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Notes on the Gold Districts of California, New Holland, Russia, and America: With Four Maps Sardis. In Asia Minor. It was through the produce thus obtained, that the nations on both shores of the Medi terranean Archipelago obtained that large supply of the precious metals, which had so great an influence on their advancing civilisation. It is true that individual adventurers were ever ready to engage in enterprises which promised wealth, and although the voyage of the Argonauts engaged the best blood of Hellas, yet neither gold robbing nor gold working enriched the nations of the west. At a later historical period, military expeditions brought large supplies of the precious metals into Europe, but there is no marked epoch of prosperity which can be assigned to their in?uence.

About this Item: Lithograph, widest 590 x 820 mm, dissected and mounted on linen, folding into the original publisher's cloth slipcase with engraved label. Scarce map of Central America, extending from southern Mexico to modern Colombia, omitting the northern Yucatan peninsula, highlighting the many conflicting boundary claims of the region. Detailed insets show the 'Isthmus of Panama' and various cross-sections of the country between Atlantic and Pacific, to illustrate the proposed routes to link Atlantic and Pacific, with a table of distances, the routes across the Isthmus of Panama and Isthmus of Darien being the shortest. This fourth state has been revised to show the international arbitration by representatives of the British and American governments to resolve the boundary dispute between Nicaragua and Costa Rica in 1852, and the boundary of 'Grey Town or San Juan de Nicaragua', laid down in 1852.
