This great map shows early territorial borders in the west. Arizona encompasses the southern tip of Nevada and a large Dakota territory encompasses present-day Wyoming. The map is finely engraved showing major towns and settlements, state boundaries, watershed, forts and Indian tribes.
Contemporary outline color on a bright sheet that has been mounted on linen. There is some light soiling, a few small dampstains, and toning along the centerfold.
