This anonymous map extends from Hudson Bay south to Florida and west of the Mississippi River to present-day Texas. The states in New England are not differentiated and Delaware is not noted. The map provides good detail of the river systems and topography, and locates scores of Indian tribes. Longitude is shown by hours at bottom (1 hour equaling 15 degrees) - an interesting and somewhat unusual representation.


Condition: B+

A mostly clean and bright example with one small hole near the left border closed on verso with archival material and a few faint spots. Issued folding.

Estimate: $150 - $180

Sold for: $75
