This is a historical map of the West that shows the early territorial boundaries. New Mexico Territory is shown with the pre-Gadsden Purchase border along the Gila River plus its northeastern extension into today's Colorado. Oregon covers Washington and east to the Continental Divide and a huge North West Territory occupies the area to the east with a small area northeast of Utah labeled Nebraska. The large Utah Territory reaches to California and to the Continental Divide in today's Colorado and touches a small portion of the unnamed Indian Territory, which locates the lands of the Arapaho and Cheyenne. States/territories are labeled with their population: Utah 11,000, New Mexico 62,000, Oregon 13,000, California 165,000. Locates numerous Indian tribes and military forts.
A couple spots, otherwise very good. Dark, early impression with original hand coloring and close, but original margins. A good example of this map.
