This is the second edition with an 1852 publication date on the title page. It contains numerous double-page maps, each printed on a separate page. The map Utah New Mexico and California shows a huge Gold Region with important rivers named including the Feather and American. There are numerous other state maps, mostly from east of the Mississippi River, but also Louisiana and a nice Texas. The map of the United States shows Oregon Territory, a large Nebraska Territory (encompassing present-day Montana, Wyoming and Colorado), and an extremely large Indian Territory. Full calf, 12vo, 359pp.
A very clean example of this book with some occasional light scattered foxing. Covers and spine show moderate wear with a few small stains and bumped edges, and the top portion of the spine is partially detached.
