This fascinating, scarce map of the young United States shows the original 13 states with the new additions of Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and Neu Orleans standing in as present-day Louisiana. The old Spanish Districts of Howard, St. Louis, Cap Girardeau, Lawrence, and Arcansas are marked in the present-day states of Missouri and Arkansas. The map provides excellent detail of Indian tribes, towns, settlements and early roads. Mollo was a Viennese engraver and publisher whose works rarely appear on the market.
There are a few scattered tiny worm holes in the map and a couple of edge tears in bottom blank margin.
