This very attractive double page map sheet of SOUTH CAROLINA is from the 1899 printing of The Century Atlas of the World. The map itself is dated 1897. The atlas was "Prepared under the superintendence of Benjamin E. Smith, A.M.," and published by The Century Company, New York. The highly prized maps in this atlas were engraved by The Matthews-Northrup Company of Buffalo, NY. The maps from The Century Atlas are acknowledged to be among the finest of the late 19th century, displaying plenty of sharp detail, attractive colors, and good margins for framing.

The page is about 12 1/2 by 17 inches in size. The reverse is blank. The map has a vertical center fold, as published.

There is a fine inset map titled "Charleston, Harbor and Vicinity." Some historical sites from the Revolutionary and Civil wars are identified, among them Fort Wagner, Fort Sullivan and Fort Sumter.

Condition is very good with slight age toning at the edges and very minor damp staining at the bottom corners that intrudes less than 1/4 inch into the blank margin, well away from the engraved area of the map.
