This great map shows early territorial borders in the west. Arizona is shown twice; once along the boundary with Mexico (in the configuration known as the Confederate Territory of Arizona), and also in its correct configuration to the west of New Mexico Territory. Idaho is in its early configuration as a large rectangular-shaped territory taking up present-day Montana and Wyoming. The map is finely engraved showing major towns and settlements, state boundaries, watershed, forts and Indian tribes. These maps were published in the serial Weekly Dispatch Atlas for later binding into a world atlas, and examples still folding and unbound are uncommon. Published by Cassell, Petter & Galpin, la Belle Sauvage Yard, Ludgate Hill. Printed on the "Steam Litho" machines of Maclure, McDonald & Macgregor, London.
