Beautifully engraved and detailed map shows the newly acquired land in the west. Large Northwest Territory, Indian Territory and Oregon Territory (extending into Canada). Most of the west is labeled Nouvelle California with a pre-Gadsden border and Texas appears with an early shape. Remarkable detail throughout includes Indian names, watershed, railroads, forts, roads, etc. A very nice map that shows a transitional period between the Mexican War and the eventual settlement of the boundary dispute between the U.S. and England.
Crisp, fine impression and very nice coloring on thick paper with wide margins. Split at lower margin outside image.
