Two maps on a sheet surrounded by text. North America is about 8 x 9"" and South America is 7 x 9". In the United States there is a large North West Territory and Arkansas Territory with the rest of the West unnamed. Mexico extends through Texas, the Southwest and California. Part of Alaska is shown and labeled Russian Settlements.
Very fine impression and coloring. Map is very good save for an area with some offsetting. Lower portion of text split, and short tear, as is often seen with this series. An area of marginal chipping at both sides.
