Features a large Arkansas Territory that extends into today's Oklahoma. The map extends well into the West, here labeled the Great Desert and Missouri Territory, as distinct from the state of Missouri. The Northwest Territory covers all of Wisconsin and Minnesota. Locates many Indian tribes, forts and early settlements. Well engraved with fine detail throughout. Decorative keyboard-style border.
Very lovely combination of outline and full-wash hand coloring. Lightly toned at centerfold.
