Blue Dot For Fort Ross, California -- Part of Russian Territory

Nice example of Brue's map of North America, published in Paris in 1836

Excellent map of North America and the West Indies. Beautifully engraved on fine heavy paper with the embossed atlas seal of the publisher below the script title. Alaska is named as Amerique Russe and is still a bit mis-shapen, with a blue dot at Point Bodega, showing the location of the Russian Fort Ross. 

The individual state and territorial borders are shown up to the Mississippi River, with a large Arkansas Territory extending above Texas.
