This attractive map of the continent prominently features an Independent Republic of Texas in its smaller configuration. There is little detail in the map with only major rivers, mountains, and a handful of cities identified. Alaska is Amerique Russe with an inset of the Aleutian Islands at lower left. A comparative view of mountains is presented at bottom and is both color-coded and keyed to the map. Drawn by E. Soulier.
