This is a reduced size version of the large map published in the GLO Annual Report for 1883. The maps are virtually identical except this smaller edition does not have the surrounding notations nor a legend to explain the coloring. It is a detailed and informative map that shows the locations of tribal Indian lands and provides some data on the pertinent treaties involved. The map does not include the panhandle, which by this time is Public Lands. Blank verso. Drawn by G. P. Strum, principle draughtsman for the G.L.O. while N.C. McFarland was its Commissioner. A most uncommon edition that was published to accompany "Public Domain" by Thomas Donaldson.


Condition: A+

Fine example with just a hint of toning along upper edge. Folded, as issued.
