This interesting German map of the United States delineates 29 states and three districts (Columbia, Missouri, Oregon). It shows the topography and political situation of the country, including the Republic of Texas. The mountains and rivers in the northwest are shown quite graphically. The Great Basin has two large lakes in the vicinity of the Great Salt Lake; from the southern lake a non-existent Rio San felipe flows to the Pacific Ocean. A numbered key in the lower left names the states and territories, and gives their areas and populations. Also featured is the Grosse National Strasse (Great National Road) that is shown running from Washington D.C. to St. Louis.
