Nice map of North America, with a massive stove pipe Republic of Texas, pre-Fremont New California (still under Mexico's control), massive Oregon Territory, primitive treatment of the California Coastal Range and the vestiges of some of the great mythical rivers of the West. Pre-dates Minnesota and Dakota, with Iowa running to Canada and a massive Indian Territory. An essential map for American Map collectors, illustrating an important change in the history of printed maps and the only truly American cartographic publishing innovation.
