Description

Rare separately issued map of the Old Northwest, including all of Ohio and Indiana and large parts of Michigan and Illinois, published by Mathew Carey for Samuel Lewis. The map was issued shortly after the Treaty of Grenville in 1795, wherein certain land disputes between the United States and the Indian Tribes in the Old Northwest, including the Wyandots, Delawares, Shawanees, Ottawas, Chippewas, Pattawatimas, Miamis, Eel Rivers, Weas, Kickapoos, Piankeshaws, and Kaskaskias. General Anthony Wayne and the representatives of the various tribes met in Grenville and concluded An Act Making Appropriations for Defraying the Expenses Which May Arise in Carrying into Effect a Treaty Made Between the United States and Certain Indian Tribes Northwest of the Ohio River. This 10 Article Treaty is most notable for ceding small 16 plots of land to the United States which were to become Chicago, Ft. Defiance, Ft. Wayne and other prominent cities. The map locates the Connecticut Lands, Army Lands, Seven Ranges, Ohio Company, Siota Grant to Sargent and Others, the Virginia Line, Symes, The Indian Boundary set by the Treaty, Ft. Hamilton, Ft. Washington or Cincinnati, Detroit, Ft. Joseph, Ouiatanon, Greenvile, Ft. Jefferson, Ft. St. Clair, Ft. Adams, Loramier's Store, & an area NE of Kentucky noted as To the French 24,000 A(cres). The map was bound into some early editions of Carey's American Atlas, but is very on the market. Repaired tear in lower left corner above title, but in all a very nice example.
