This richly engraved map shows the United States extending into present-day Canada up to the 55° latitude line and Russia in control of Alaska. The Republic of Texas is outlined, and Mexico's northern border is drawn according to the Treaty of 1819 (here miss-printed as 1810). Surrounded beautifully engraved scenes of North and Central America including wildlife, a ship stranded in the polar sea and a Mayan temple.
Beautiful example with strong impression, fine original color in outline and full margins. Lower margin with a short closed edge tear and several spots of mold.
