TOOK THREE YEARS' TIME TO
Lloyd's Map of America
Is Now Ready.
Having been engraved on a new
plan entirely, and printed and colored nicely 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. To show
how correct this Map is, we will just say that, on the 16th of May, the Alabama
and Florida Railroad was opened from Pensacola to Montgomery, Alabama, and it is
laid down correctly on our Map.
LLOYD'S RAILROAD MAP SHOWS
EVERY RAILROAD IN RUNNING ORDER UP TO FEB. 1, l861. Every station and city
is marked down on the roads, and the distance, between each station, and the
total length of the road. 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 FORTS, BATTERIES, and STRONGHOLDS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE LAID DOWN
PROMINENTLY. The reader can see 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.
Company, which IS ALONE WORTH THE
PRICE OF THE MAP.
30,000 CITIES, TOWNS, AND
STATIONS ARE LAID DOWN ON LLOYD'S MAP.
A VALUABLE FEATURE.—On the back
of the sheet on which Lloyd's Map is printed, is the name of each Railroad, its
total length, cost of fare, where passengers breakfast, dine, and sup, and a
sketch of every Town, City, River, and Fort; also an Historical Sketch, and the
population of each place, from the last Census, and other reliable information
of the latest date. This information will be of great value to every one at the
present time, and is alone worth three times the price of the Map. The amount of
information given on the back is equal to an octavo volume of 300
pages—information that can not be had elsewhere for $10—all for 25 cents.
A TIME INDICATOR is also inserted
on the face of Lloyd's Great United States Railroad Map, allowing the difference
in time at Washington, D.C., and the principal cities in this country and
Europe. Thus, when it Is 12 o'clock, pm., at Washington, it is HALF PAST TWO
O'CLOCK the following night at Jeddo, Japan—being 14 hours ahead of our time at
Jeddo. Lloyds Map can be folded up and put away without creasing, or hung up on
the wall. Agents will find that they can sell from 20 to 40 copies of the
colored edition daily. It can be sent by mail, in strong wrappers, by the
quantity, at ONE CENT per copy. Sending the Map by Mail does not injure it at
NO LICENSE IS REQUIRED TO SELL
THIS MAP IN ANY STATE IN AMERICA.
As there is so much deception
practiced on the public now-a-days by humbug Maps of the Seat of War, we have
thought it advisable to submit evidence of the correctness of this Map.

Ninth, and Cousin EDWARD in the Zouaves, and Cousin JOE in Col. DURYEE'S
