This map was compiled from the corrected map of the General Land Office 1898 and from data on file in the territorial office under the direction of Harry King, Chief of Drafting. It is an attractive map with great attention paid to detail, including railroads constructed and proposed, as well as roads and trails. The map covers present-day western Oklahoma with the panhandle, but only the western portion of what was then Indian Territory is shown. Indian reservations within the territory are shown, including the Wichitas, Kiowas, Comanches and Apaches. Land Offices are located at Woodward, Alva, Enid, Perry, Guthrie, Kingfisher, Ft. Reno, Oklahoma City, Mangum and Lawton.

The map is still bound into the original report which includes 26 plates related to the development of the territory (key buildings, agriculture, forest reserves) and 2 smaller folding maps showing average precipitation and temperature. 8vo, 133 pp. in original clay colored wrappers.
