A finely engraved and detailed map extending from the Aleutian Chain to the Caribbean. The map is filled with information on rivers, lakes, and mountain ranges, and also includes numerous place names. Texas is named and Mexico controls the Southwest. The West coast is divided between Neu Albion and Neu Californien, and Alaska is named Russischen America. The then popularized view of an east-west running mountain range west of the Rockies is present.
Issued folding, now pressed, with archival paper repairs in top blank margin and a few extraneous creases. The binding trip at bottom left has been professionally replaced to accommodate framing.
