This fascinating, scarce map of the young United States shows the original 13 states with the new additions of Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and Neu Orleans. The old Spanish Districts of Howard, St. Louis, Cap Girardeau, Lawrence, and Arcansas are marked in the present-day states of Missouri and Arkansas. The map provides excellent detail of Indian tribes, towns, settlements, and early roads. Mollo was a Viennese engraver and publisher whose works rarely appear on the market.


Condition: B+

A sound example with original outline color, minor toning, and a small stain in the lower right corner that just enters the border.

Estimate: $350 - $425
