Description :Drawn in 1903, this "Topographic, Diagramatic, and Illustrative Map of the Panama Canal" illustrates the project for U.S. readers. The top panel depicts the excavations done by the two French companies that began construction. The middle panel shows a profile of the project. The excavations remaining to be done, shown in black, were to be completed by the United States. The bird's-eye scene on the lower panel demonstrates how the completed passage was to look.
The bird's-eye view, across the top, is most interesting, showing men, horses and machines doing the work of building the Canal in the area near the San Pablo Cut. The relief map and profile represent the entire length of the canal.
After years of negotiations and false starts, and after helping Panama break away from Colombia, the United States concluded a treaty with Panama in 1903 to build the Panama Canal, thus increasing U.S. involvement in both Latin America and the Pacific. Secretary of State John Hay and the Department of State played a prominent role in the canal project.

Condition : Lithograph printed in five colours, with it original cover, including a "condensed descriptive matter of the Panama Canal". In very good condition, except for some small stains on front cover.
