A fine example of this map showing a huge Nebraska Territory extending to the Canadian border and the Continental Divide. Colorado has not yet formed as Kansas has an extended western border in the Rocky Mountains. It is filled with interesting place names and explorers' routes, numerous forts, explored Pacific railroad routes, and emigrant roads. One of the first atlas maps to locate the new gold rush towns of Denver Cy. and Auroria in western Kansas Territory.
A couple of small spots and overall pleasant age toning.
