Lovely map with the Republic of Texas, the United States extending into present-day Canada, Russia in control of Alaska, and Mexico's northern border according to the Treaty of 1810. Surrounded by beautifully engraved scenes of North and Central America including local animals, a ship stranded in the polar sea, and a Mayan Temple. A very popular and decorative 19th century map. Full later color of both map and surrounding scenes.
Minor spots in margins and remnants of hinge tape on verso.
