This early county map of Missouri and Illinois shows interesting county configurations. There are large areas of Indian territories in southwest Missouri, including the Shawnees, Delawares and Kickapoos. Northern Missouri consists of Bounty Lands. Illinois is only shown as far north as Mercer County, and there are large, undeveloped counties in the north, such as Fayette, Edgar, Clark, and Peoria. Development is mostly confined to the major rivers, with a number of early roads and cities shown. Engraved and printed by Fenner Sears & Co.
