Interesting map with great pre-Gadsden Purchase western borders. The west is composed of only California, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon and NW Territory and Alaska is Russian Territory. Good detail throughout the Caribbean. A very fine example of Dufour's work with title in fancy script.
Some very light offsetting in ocean. Folding as issued with small strip of paper laid in at binding trim, not affecting map. A few spots in blank margins.
