Interesting and uncommon map from an unknown American atlas. Potter & Wilson were publishers in Poughkeepsie around 1840. Stiles was an engraver in New York who produced maps for Goodrich and Colton, in addition to school geographies. This map has a number of interesting features, including an enlarged "Wisconsin or Huron Territory" and a large "Ozark District" to the west of Arkansas. Texas is still shown as "Part of Mexico."
Crisp impression with original color on thick paper with original margins. Trace of offsetting and clean split on lower center fold.
