Texas is shown as a part of Mexico, Oregon is to the west of the Continental Divide, the huge unorganized area between Oregon and Missouri is variously labeled Osage, Mandan, Sioux, Ozark and Wisconsin Districts. The U.S./Canadian border in the west extends far north into present-day British Columbia. Data obtained by Lewis and Clark is evident in the depiction of the river systems in the West. A very handsome example of this desirable map that is becoming increasingly scarce.
Crisp impression with beautiful coloring. A little close at right margin, as issued.
