Description

Scarce map of North America, from the first edition of David Burr's Universal Atlas. While the map bears the copyright date of 1834, Rumsey indicates that the atlas was not published until 1835.

The cartography of the Northwest and Uppper Missouri regions are dominated by information from Lewis & Clark. The map includes a 54-40 or fight Northwestern Border between Canada and the US and an early depiction of Mexico, in the first decade after its independence from Spain. Upper California and Texas are still a part of Mexico. Alaska is shown as Russian Possessions.
