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."
