Compiled by W.H. Dall, U.S. Coast Survey, from the latest authorities to illustrate a paper by Geo. Gibbs. The map is a detailed examination of the Indian Tribes west of the Cascades. A legend provides the key to the coloring of the tribes. A note states that the official spelling of the tribal names are reduced to their phonetic value. Strong, bright colors.
Very light toning along some folds and tiny area missing in white space. Backed with Japanese tissue.
