This scarce map of North America depicts some interesting cartography. The United States are shown extending to the Mississippi River, with the Appalachian Mountains extending south of present-day Atlanta. The Rocky Mountains are shown as four short, parallel mountain ranges. A River of the West connects to the R. Oregan, which nearly connects to the Mississippi River via the Moine or Salt R. (Des Moines River). Cenis and New Leon are located in present-day Texas, and California is labeled New Albion. Indian tribes are named throughout. Engraved by J. Menzies.
