This nice copper engraved chart shows North America with undeveloped cartography in the western regions. The Oregon River originates roughly in Nebraska and flows as the River of the West to the Pacific at Puget Sound. Alaska is taking shape with some islands shown at the end of the Aleutian Peninsula. California is labeled New Albion and Quivira takes in most of the West. Published by Oliver & Boyd.
