This attractive map of North America shows the United States confined to east of the Mississippi River despite its 1807 circa date. Louisiana stretches from the Mississippi River west to the Rocky Mountains, and British claims in the west are too generous, pushing well south into Spanish California. Notes related to the exploration of MacKenzie and Hearne are shown in northern Canada.
Issued folding on "1807" watermarked paper with faint scattered foxing. There are remnants of hinge tape on verso.
