One of the earliest printed references to Thomas Jefferson's Ten Proposed States in the West

Scarce early map of the newly created United States, with a note which includes 10 new proposed states proposed by Thomas Jefferson--Silvania, Michigania, Chersonesus, Arsenistpia, Metropotamia, Illinoia, Saratoga, Washington, Polypotamia, and Pelisypia.

The map is highly detailed, extending to the Rio Grande and including notes on the Sioux Indians and the Country of the Padoucas.

Extensive notes throughout, including notes on early explorers such as De Soto and La Sale, Indians, Forts and other points of early interest.

The map appeared primarily in late editions of DeVaugondy's Atlas, reissued by Delamarche.
