One of the first maps to show the details of Lewis & Clark's expedition. Excellent well researched map of North America. In addition to the Lewis & Clark details, it includes up to date information in Alaska and the NW Coast, and throughout the Missouri and Mississippi Valleys. Malte-Brun went to great lengths to insure that this fine little work reflected the best in contemporary cartographic detail. Ironically, it is also the earliest recorded map to show a river running from San Francisco to the Great Salt Lake (Teguayo), a myth which persisted for the next 20 years. An interesting and historically important map.
