The subtitle continues, "Comprising that District lying between Chocolate River and Fond du Lac under the superintendency of Genl. John Stockton, U.S. Agent." This large map, issued on two joined sheets, was compiled partly from explorations made in 1844 by the Mineral Lands Agency at Copper Harbor, partly from a map published by S.D.U.K., and drawings from U.S. Surveys by Dr. Houghton, W.A. Burt, Nicollet & Bayfield. Mineral tracts are located and numbered, with leased tracts indicated by hand coloring. It shows the trap range of northern Michigan, locations of the American Fur Company Posts and Catholic/Methodist Missions. Includes a large inset map of Lake Superior and an engraved view of Camp Gray near Talcott Harbor.
