This uncommon German map of Oregon Territory shows the U.S. claim extending well into British Columbia to 54°40. The map reaches south to Monterey, and inland to the Sierra Nevadas and Rocky Mountains. The information is taken from the maps of Fremont and other western explorers. The Columbia River and San Francisco Bay are included in detailed insets, complete with soundings.
Original outline color with minor toning and light scattered foxing primarily in the blank margins.
