Scarce map of the Western US from Traugotte Bromme's Hand Atlas. Bromme was best known for his American Travel Guides, which began in the 1830s and continued for several decades, providing German Emigrants w/excellent information on the US. This map shows Bormme's characteristic attention to detail, especially identifying roads and placenames, especially in Texas, California and in the mining regions of the Rocky Mountains. Excellent detail on both sides of the Rockies. The name Arizona makes an early appearance in New Mexico Territory. Dozens of forts and Indian Tribes named throughout. Excellent attention given to the Mountains, including Humboldt's Mountains and many other ephemeral names. A wonderful collector's map.
