Very early example of printed color in yellow and black. Sidney Morse invented the wax engraving method used to print this map. Features ab Independent Texas, Mexico in control of the Southwest, and Alaska as Russian America. The boundary above Oregon Territory is colored to show both the American claim into British Columbia and the eventually settled boundary. Large Indian Territory with no defined northern boundary, same for Iowa.
