Description

Uncommon edition of Carey's map of the United States, showing 24 the country as far west as the Missouri Territory.  The map is attractively laid out, with a primary focus being on rivers, but also many towns and other centers named.

The map reflects a fascinating period in the geopolitical evolution of the U.S. Mississippi Territory still appears, including all of the future State of Alabama. Michigan Territory has recently been created, but does not yet include the Upper Peninsula. Illinois Territory and Indiana Territory are shown, but the boundaries are pushed considerably west of their true location by an oversized Ohio, such that Illinois does not touch any part of Lake Michigan and Chicago is left in the Northwest Territory.

This map originally appeared in Carey's 1813 American Pocket Atlas.
