Project for a Canal with Locks [facsimile]
Paris: Cabasson, 1900
Description: 9 ½ inches
This document cover was produced by the Compagnie Nouvelle du Canal de Panama (1894-1904). The French report concerns the project to complete the canal locks by “cutting through rock,” and providing Atlantic Ocean shipping. This document announces the inclusion of cross-sections in the plan. The New Panama Canal Company of France was superseded by the second Isthmian Canal Commission of the United States.
