Description

First state of this early map of Florida Territory, showing Monroe County, Mosquito County and the Seminole Indian lands in the southern part of the state and naming the Everglades for the first time.

Excellent early territorial map of Florida, being one of the earliest obtainable separate maps of Florida to appear in a commercial atlas. Shows early counties (approximately 20 counties), towns, roads, Indian paths, Indian villages, court houses, lakes, rivers, bays, keys, forts, etc. Inset of panhandle. One of the best early maps of Florida and certainly one of the most detailed.

The map was apparently taken from American sources, including HS Tanner. The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge was active from the 1830s through the 1860s and published some of the best regional maps of the era.
