Charming early 19th century map of the continent depicting the newly acquired Louisiana Territory. The boundary between the United States and Canada is left undesignated although the outline coloring appears to claim the entire Pacific Northwest for Britain. Spain is shown in control of the present-day Southwest and Florida. Alaska is named "Amerique Russe". Attractive (uncolored) title cartouche. Engraved by Tardieu.
