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. This is an early edition with only a few organized counties confined to a narrow band along the coast.
A very nice example with full, original margins on supple paper. Fine original coloring.
