Very scarce German map of Oregon Territory, whichis still shown extending to 54 degrees, 40 minutes, giving the US most of British Columbia. This map is likely the most detailed map of the region to appear in a Commercial Atlas prior to 1850. Numerous forts are shown (MacKensie, Pitt, Hall, Bourse, Kutani, Okanagan, Vancouver, George, Umqua, Nesquatty, Kaoulis, Nes Perces and others), early settlements, Missions, a German Monestery on the Nesqually River, fur trading stations, mountains, elevations, The detail extends south to Monterey, with notes on the Sierra Nevadas. Large insets of the Columbia River and San Francisco Bay. A fabulous map. Only the third example we have had in 11 years.
