Scarce engraved map of the United States from the Huntington's Atlas, designed to illustrate the Malte-Brun school geography...
This map belongs to a group of American maps, published around this time, which handled the western coast of North America in remarkably retrograde fashion. For instance, her San Francisco Bay is referred to as Bay of Sir. F. Drake and the whole coastline of California is poorly formed.
In the lower right corner, the map includes a table of distances to Washington, D.C., and a table of square mileage for all of the States at the time.
The map was engrave by George Boynton at Boston.
