    This is a complete example of Olney's atlas with 24 maps on 9 double-page and 6 single-page sheets including several related to the United States as well as maps of the world and continents.

The map of the United States shows the new state of Texas in its elongated configuration, reaching well north of Long's Peak. To the west is a small region named Santa Fe or New Mexico. Oregon Territory reaches to the Continental Divide and shows a correct border with Canada. See images for a complete list of maps on the front cover. Published by Pratt, Woodford & Co., New York.
