Rare map of the United States, depicted shortly after the Louisiana purchase.
An outstanding western map, providing interesting detail on both sides of the Misssissippi River. A massive Indiana Territory takes up the old Northwest Territory. An oddly shaped Ohio appears below Indiana Territory, primarily in modern Illinois.Mississippi Territory includes Alabama and is full of Indian villages and forts.
Western Tennessee and Kentucky are sparsely populated and include several forts. Several conjectural mountain ranges dominate the Plains, along with forts and Indian Villages. Nice detail inTexas. The source of the Mississippi & Missouri Rivers reflects the map's predating Lewis & Clark and Humboldt.
A scarce and desireable map, one of the earliest maps of the US published after the Louisiana Purchase.
