A scarce map of Kentucky with the Tennesee Government / South Western Territory named below and the North Western Territory above. There are several Bounty Land Grants named on the map, including a large portion of northwest Tennessee noted as 'Reserved for the North Carolina Troops'. General Clark's Grant is named on the border with present-day Ohio, and the New Jersey Company is in possession of a large piece of land in what would become Illinois. This map was derived from the 1794 map by John Russell. Engraved by John Scoles.
A mostly clean, bright example with minor edge tears and chips in the blank margins. The lower margin has been extended and the left and top margins have been reinforced.
