Description

Marvelous late 18th Century map of the United States, East and West Florida and part of Canada.

The map shows Georgia extending to the Mississippi River, pre-dating Mississippi Territory. Massive Western Territory dominates the Old Northwest Territory, with no suggestion of Jefferson's propositions for the dividing the region. Kentucky is named, but without a defined northern border. Both East and West Florida are shown, pre-dating the first US incursions into the region. Many Indian Tribes named, along with some Western Forts and several annotations. Chicago named (Chickago).The map appeared in Cooke's Geography, published from about 1800 to 1817, apparently without changes to the map.
