This set of three matched maps by the young Lt. Robert E. Lee are fine examples of his cartographic skills at this early point in his military career. Charts include: No. 1 - Map of the Des Moines Rapids of the Mississippi River (49.5 x 22.5"); No. 2 - Map of the Rock Island Rapids of the Mississippi River (66 x 24"); and No. 3 - Map of the Harbor of St. Louis, Mississippi River (43 x 17"). Rarely offered together, they cover the river in minute detail.

Maps No. 1 & 3 are very good to fine. Map No. 2 has toning along one fold and a fold split. All are tissue backed.
