This colorful and graphic county map of the territory provides great detail throughout. It locates land surveys, Indian Reservations, military reservations, county boundaries, land grant limits and numerous railroad lines. Topography and watershed are well developed and railroad land grants are clearly shown with 40 and 50 miles limits indicated through color overprinting. Red patterns indicate the Indian Reservations and the applicable treaties are referenced. Several areas remain to be surveyed. Washington was admitted to the Union in 1889. The map is issued folding and still bound into the original 62 page report from the Territorial Governor, Watson C. Squire. Paperback.


Condition: B+

Very colorful map with faint offsetting and two tiny splits at fold intersections. Text pages in the report are mostly clean with some very light occasional foxing.
