Tremendous large format map of the United States, likely separately issued, although also probably bound into large composite atlases of the period.

 The map is full of early and ephemeral information about the US. In the West, there are two Salt Lakes (Timanagos and Teguayo), each connected to the Pacific By a mythical river. Excellent post Lewis & Clark cartography appears in District De La Colombie (Oregon Territory), including many Indian Tribes, accurate river placements, and a tracing of the Lewis & Clark route, from the headwaters of the Missouri River to the Columbia River and back, one of the few maps to trace the route. Several places along the Route are named, including Canoe Camp and Travellers, and the different routes taken on return are also noted separately, as is a point of Observation on the Marie River.

A number of early Forts and Trading Posts are also noted in the region explored by Lewis & Clark. Other Lewis & Clark notes appear in the Missouri River Valley. The Rocky Mountain configuration is based on Humboldt and Pike. A road system in the West from Santa Fe to the Salt Lake area is depicited, along with Missions. In Texas, the site abandoned by Champ D'Aisle is noted, as is the Presidio and Texas Capital. Double wide Arkansas and the Spanish Land Districts of Howard, St. Louis, Laurence, and Arkansas are shown West of the Mississippi. A tremendous post-Melish map.
