First, by J.D. Barbie du Bocage of Paris, is a nice map of the continent with a Pre-Gadsden border between the United States and Mexico. Large western territories with Minnesota extending to the Missouri River, Nebraska extending to the Canadian and Washington borders, and no Arizona or Nevada. Alaska is still Amerique Russe. Surrounded in a rococo style border. Second, by Otto Spamer of Leipzig, features the topography of the continent and is surrounded by wood engravings of the wildlife, occupations, and landscapes of the region. Nice pair of maps.
