This is an interesting map of the state of Florida based on the important Mitchell series showing towns, forts, roads, canals, major rivers and lakes. The map reflects the configuration of counties in 1846, prior to the formation of Holmes County in the panhandle (1847) and Putnam County in the northeast (1848). Central Florida is dominated by a large Indian Reserve with a "Track of the Indians" noted from Tampa to Jupiter. There are three inset maps detailing Pensacola, Tallahassee, and St. Augustine. Water routes from St. Augustine and Pensacola to various ports are described above and below the map.


Condition: B+

Original outline color with a few minor spots of foxing.
