Interesting map of the United States in the first part of the 19th century that features a very well mapped river system. Missouri has a vertical western border and the Northwest Territory takes in present-day Wisconsin and Minnesota. Arkansas Territory is in its largest configuration with its western boundary at the Texas panhandle. Texas is still part of Mexico and includes a few place names such as S. Antonio and Nacogdoches. The balance of the Midwest is labeled with numerous Indian tribes. Fancy titling in a small oval cartouche. Four distance scales with longitude measured only from Paris.
