This colorful, detailed and informative map of present-day Oklahoma is sans its panhandle. Legends identify military reservations, Indian reservations, roads, trails, and railroads. Watershed and topography are well developed. Thirty-one different Indian lands are noted with information on pertinent treaties and Executive Orders, all keyed to the map. Attractive and large sheet lithographed by A. Hoen & Co, Baltimore. Lot also includes the original 31 pages of the related report "Letter from the Secretary of the Interior…concerning the legal status of the Indians in Indian Territory."
Beautiful, strong color, full margins. Map has faint offsetting in blank areas, otherwise a fine example. The report pages are loose with light even toning.
