A. Etats-Unis de l'Amerique du Nord, by Charles Monin, circa 1835, black and white (10.4 x 7.9"). Here the United States extends past the Rockies to show part of Oregon Territory. Interesting territorial borders are depicted including a large Arkansas Territory and several named Indian districts -- Huron, Sioux, Osage, Ozark, Mandan. Texas is named separately from Mexico, however there is no formal border to the south. Condition: There are a few faint spots in the image with a manuscript notation in the right blank margin.

B. Etats-Unis et Nouvelle Bretagne, by Louis Antoine, circa 1850, hand color (11.2 x 8.7"). The United States here stretches all the way to California with the acquisition of the Southwest from Mexico. A small New Mexico territory is surrounded by the much larger New California and the state of Texas. Large Missouri, Iowa and Indian territories occupy the Plains, and the border with Canada reflects a current configuration. Decorated by a keyboard style border. Condition: There are just a few minor spots of foxing in the image and damp stains in the left and right blank margins.
