Description

Important map of the West, first issued to accompany Charles Wilkes Report of the US Exploring Expedition West of the Rocky Mountains, 1841-45.

The present example was substantially improved and re-issued during the California Gold Rush.

The map extends from Klameth Lake and the Mexican Border in the West to the Anahuac Mountains and the sources of the Green River and Colorado River in the East. 

The present example has been heavily updated and improved to incorporate the information from Fremont's expeditions, with significantly improved topographical and geographical details, especially in California, Utah Territory and the region east of the Rio Colorado.
