Fascinating map of the United States, the decade following the Louisiana purchase. Among the more notable features of the map are the many interesting mountain ranges in the Plains regions, the early appearance of Michigan Territory, a distorted Indiana and Illinois pushed far to the west, the districts west of the Mississippi River, including New Orleans, Abcansas, Lawrence, Girardeau and St. Louis, and the profusion of Indian Tribes shown. An early appearance of the city of Galveson. Maps by Tranquillo Mollo are very scarce. Mollo collaborated with several French and English map makers to sell maps in Vienna and published Dirwald's atlas and separate maps, but his work rarely appears on the market.
