This is the first General Land Office map of the United States. It covers most of the United States except for the Eastern seaboard because the original 13 states and the state of Texas were exempt from coverage by the General Land Office. The state of the surveys in the remaining states and territories are noted in considerable detail. Wyoming is still attached to Dakota Territory. The southern tip of Nevada is still attached to Arizona. A small portion of Dakota has been surveyed for settlers but little has been done in Arizona, Nevada, Idaho or Montana.


Condition: B

Issued folding with scattered foxing mostly at left and faint offsetting. Trimmed to inside the neatline at left with two small edge tears that have been closed on verso with old tape. Several fold separations also at left have been closed on verso with archival tape.
