Scarce early map of Missouri, hand colored by counties. Many of the western counties are Indian Lands, such as Kickapoo, Delawares, Shawnees, et. The Bounty Lands are shown in the North. A massive Wayne County dominates the south. A number of early towns are shown, primarily along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, although no sign of Kansas City. Liberty, Ft. Osage, Buffton, Lexington, Jefferson, Charitson, Franklin and Boone are all shown on the western part of the Missouri, as is Ft. Osage.
One of the earliest separate maps of the state published outside of America and a fascinating map of the state, shortly after statehood. Gorgeous full color example. Full color examples are rare on the market.
