This is the more decorative version of this interesting map of the American south and the Mississippi river valley. The map extends from Charleston, South Carolina west to include New Orleans and north into Illinois. The Mississippi and Ohio Rivers are finely described. Florida is shown with its panhandle extending west to include Mobile and Biloxi. A small inset provides details of the Missouri River. The title cartouche is topped bedecked with an urn and garlands.
Issued folded, now flattened with the binding trim at lower left neatly replaced to accommodate framing.
