This is the second edition of the first separate map of Michigan Territory, 14 years before statehood. There is no development and little detail with the exception of a few forts, towns and "new settlements". The "Indian Line" separates the territory with seven counties named, but undesignated, in the southern section. Two panels of English text flank the map providing fascinating details of the new territory and noting the total population at 8,896.
