Louisiana Territory Before Lewis & Clark
Scarce Matthew Carey map of Louisiana Territory, published shortly after the Louisiana Purchase and prior to the return of Lewis & Clark their explorations up the Missouri River and across the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean.
Carey's map is a curious amalgam of information.
An essential map of Western American collectors.
Not to be confused with Carey's later Missouri Territory. formerly Louisiana., which was issued in his 1814 pocket atlas.
A very unusual and desirable large-paper copy.
