This is a scarce German issue of Melish's important map that first appeared in "Statistical Account of the United States" in 1813. The map is filled with Indian tribes, forts, and early settlements. Several early western territories are shown including North West Ter., Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Mississippi. Of particular note is the notation of several major roads with notations of distances between cities.
Folding as issued. Bit of light foxing, else very good.
