Attractive and early map of the United States that shows the western boundary of North and South Carolina, and Virginia and Georgia extending to the Mississippi River. A table in the Atlantic names the 13 states as organized in 1783 with their capitals. West and East Florida are delineated to show them as a part of the Spanish possessions of Louisiane with West Florida extending to the Mississippi River. The huge northwestern region is unnamed and unsettled. The map locates numerous forts, Indian villages and good detail of early watershed knowledge. Small decorative cartouche at upper left. No. 26 along vertical neatline at lower right.
