A very uncommon map of the United States featuring either the Republic of Texas or the new state shown in its largest configuration with a stovepipe boundary extending northwest to include Santa Fe. Wisconsin and Iowa territories are both greatly enlarged and stretch to the Canadian border. The huge Western Territory claims all those regions that would become Oklahoma, Kansas, the Dakotas, Wyoming and Montana. J. Gellatly was active in the 1840s and 1850s. William and Robert Chambers (atlas publishers) were active between 1845 and 1895, their first listed atlas being 1845.
