Rare map of French Louisiana Territory and the contiguous part of the United States from Etienne Herbin De Halle's Statistique generale et particulare de la France et ses colonies… Wheat describes the map as being of antiquarian interest respecting this fading French period in Louisiana. The lower Missouri and the Kansas are well delineated. The Platte does not appear, nor does the Grand Detour. The upper Missouri is shown, although without the benefit of Lewis & Clark's approaching explorations. The map illustrates how little was known about the region. One of the largest printed maps of French Louisiana. Detail in Old Northwest Territory is also noteworthy. Lots of Indian details, forts, etc. Wheat 257. Very rare.
