Fascinating, early map of the western portion of the brand-new United States, centered on the Mississippi River. The southern states' borders have been extended to the Mississippi. Early settlements, frontier forts, missions, mines, Indian villages, as well as some trails and portages are revealed in great detail. Seven distance scales fill the left of the map. Engraved by Andre.
