A. United States. This is an interesting small map covering the United States and the adjoining parts of Canada and Mexico. It shows the United States following the Missouri Compromise with both the state and territory of Missouri depicted. It shows the United States in control of present-day British Columbia with the "Boundary between the United States & Russia settled by Convention April 5th...1824." The boundary with Mexico is per the Treaty of 1819 and includes Texas (unnamed). Missouri Territory encompasses the entire Great Plains from Texas to Canada and from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains. Other territories include Michigan, North West and Arkansas, the capital of which is Little Rock or Arkopolis. The map presents a particularly good view of the rivers and Indian nations in the West. Engraved by James Young.

B. N. & S. Carolina Georgia & Florida/i>. Covers the region from Norfolk to the Florida Keys with good detail throughout. Development in Florida is still confined to the north, with only one wagon road shown from St. Augustine to Tallahassee and Pensacola. Cape Florida is shown near present-day Miami. Also engraved by James Young.
