Map shows a huge Nebraska Territory extending to the Canadian border and the Continental Divide and Kansas' 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. This is one of the first atlas maps to locate the new gold rush towns of Denver Cy. and Auroria in the portion of western Kansas Territory that would soon become Colorado Territory.
Full margins, original color and good impression. One spot at right margin and another in uncolored Utah, else near fine.
