Map of the United States Naming Deseret.
Nice example of one of the rarest and most decorative French Maps of the United States from the mid-19th Century.
The map includes classic American Territorial cartography of the period, including Oregon and Washington Territories extending to the Rocky Mountains, post-Gadsden Purchase border with Mexico, although the pre-Purchase border is also shown.
Massive Utah and New Mexico Territorial configurations, along with Mormon Country (Pays des Mormons) and a reference to Deseret.
Kansas extends to Colorado and Nebraska runs to Canada. Excellent detail in Texas, including early roads.
Elegantly colored with Garnier's trademark title vignette. Garnier's atlas is rare and highly sought after for its fine colors and elegant engraving style.
