Interesting map of the US, illustrating the ephemeral western Territorial borders. The most interesting ephemeral border is the odd Arizona, below New Mexico, apparently reflecting the maker's intention that Arizona cover only the Gadsden Purchase Territory. California is misshapen. Nevada is truncated at the bottom. Washington wraps around Oregon and a massive Nebraska Territory still runs to Canada. Texas is a bit too tall and misshapen in the west. A marvelous map from Vuillemin's Geographie Moderne.
