This nice school atlas contains 13, full and double-page, maps plus five tables. It includes 4 maps of U.S. regions, a map of the United States, maps of the 5 continents, maps of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and a sheet with two world maps. The map of the Untied States has a huge Missouri Territory taking in the plains region and a large Oregon Territory taking in the entire Pacific Northwest including parts of present-day British Columbia. It also shows Arkansas Territory with its western boundary extending to Mexico, which incorporates Texas and the entire Southwest. Printed paper wrappers.
The maps are very good to near fine with some very occasional scattered foxing and a short fold separation at the bottom of the United States map. The tables and charts following the maps are heavily foxed. Paper covers are soiled and partially detached.
