Description

Scarce map of the Southwestern United States, published by the Society for Diffusion of Useful Knowledge.

The map shows a fine snapshot of the earliest Western territorial configurations following the admission of Utah and New Mexico as Territories.

The map is dominated by a massive Utah, New Mexico (immediately post-Gadsden Purchase), with Kanzas Territory shown for the first time and a strange configuration for Nebraska.

While the earlier editions of this map include the Republic of Texas, this later pre-Gadsden edition rarely appears on the market.

Excellent detail and notations throughout the map, including notes on Indian Tribes, mountain elevations, topography, etc.

A great collectors map.
