1) Map of the States of Alabama and Georgia, 1831, (15.8 x 10"). An early map of the states with early county configurations, particularly in Alabama. Excellent detail, including mountains, rivers, roads, lakes, towns, Indian tribes, and a host of other details. Inset plan of Savannah at upper right.

2)Map of the States of Mississippi, Louisiana and the Arkansas Territory, 1832, (10.5 x 16"). Great depiction of Arkansas Territory.

3), 1832, (9.7 x 8"). The title of this early map is misleading because in 1832 Florida was a territory and not a state. There are only a few counties designated including Monroe County taking in the entire southern tip, and Mosquito County taking in most of the east coast. Seminole Indians are shown in Central Florida and an Indian Path connects a solitary road, that terminates in the Tampa vicinity, with the east coast. A road along the east coast terminates at a town named Florida near present-day Miami.
