Description

Rare Swedish map of North America, published by Akerland in Stockholm in 1827.

The map is dominated by a massive Fria Indianer Lander" (Free Indian Lands), with a fascinating depiction of the Trans-Mississippi West.

The place names in Alaska are primarily Russian names, with a generally very unusual coastline.

Nya Albion (New Albion) and Nya California (New California) are shown, with N. Cornwall, N. Hanover and N. Georgien along the coast of Alaska, Canada and Washington. Indian Tribes are shown, along with signficant post-Lewis & Clark details in the northwest.

A fine example of this rare map.
