This uncommon map presents a pre-Tennessee configuration. The map covers the region from the eastern seaboard to the Mississippi River. The Western Territory takes in all the area west of the Ohio River with several Indian tribes located and areas of "Extensive Meadows" in today's Illinois. Kentucky occupies a larger area that appears to include part of today's West Virginia. A large unnamed territory in the region of Mississippi and Alabama is the tribal territory of the Chicasaws, Cherokees, Chactaws and Muskogees. In the Northeast Main is noted as belonging to Massachusetts Bay. Engraved by T. Conder.
