A great map of the Pacific Northwest showing both territories extending to the Continental Divide and that region that would become Idaho. Of specific interest is the notation of all the major exploration routes, wagon trails and the proposed routes for the transcontinental railway as explored by Gov. Stevens. The organized counties of both Oregon and Washington are confined to a narrow band along the coast. Decorative border. Includes the descriptive text page with fascinating information on the territories.
Some stains in blank margins, well away from map.
