Five Dollar Map for 25 Cents,

Colored in States nicely.

Took Three Years' Time to Engrave
this Map.

Lloyd's Railroad Map of
America,

Having been engraved on a new plan entirely, and printed and colored on a POWER PRESS, we can make and color it so low as to defy competition. The usual price of a map of this size is from $5 to $8.

IT IS FOUR FEET SQUARE,

Printed on an entire sheet of strong white linen paper, and shows to the reader, at one glance, from CANADA to TEXAS, and is acknowledged by all railroad men to be the most CORRECT Map ever offered to the people of this country, and is used by them altogether. LLOYD'S MAP SHOWS EVERY RAILROAD IN RUNNING ORDER UP TO MAY 16, 1861. Every station is marked down on the roads, and the distances between each station, and the total length of the road, and also the names of its officers and their places of residence, and the running time of the trains on every Railroad in America are given. Every River in America is traced out, and the Towns and Cities on the Ohio and Mississippi, and other Rivers, are marked down plainly, ALL THE STRONGHOLDS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE LAID DOWN PROMINENTLY : the reader can see at a glance the situation of the NORTHERN and SOUTHERN STATES, and can comprehend at a glance the immense extent of territory owned by the South which is washed by the sea for more than two thousand miles.

30,000 CITIES, TOWNS, AND STATIONS ARE LAID DOWN ON LLOYD'S MAP.

As there is so much deception practiced upon the public, we have thought it advisable to submit evidence of the correctness of this Map.
