DESCRIPTION:

This scarce, large-scale map shows the United States east of the Texas panhandle with the central part of the country divided into the Ozark, Osage, Sioux, Huron and Mandan Districts. The map is beautifully engraved and extremely detailed, particularly in its depiction of the roads and railroads. Notations throughout, some quite lengthy, concerning the Indian tribes, river courses, and early western trails. Included are a number of inset maps, the largest of which shows the Western Territories. Wheat notes that this inset uses Lewis and Clark geography “save that it has the R. de Ashley and Mt. St. Joseph ‘couvert de neige au mois de mai,’ reminiscent of Smith.” Additional insets are of Newfoundland, Southern Florida, Philadelphia & Trenton vicinity, New York City vicinity, Boston vicinity and Baltimore & Washington. This example of the map appeared in Andriveau-Goujon’s rare elephant-folio volume, “Atlas de Choix ou Recueil des Meilleures Cartes de Geographie Ancienne et Moderne Dressees par Divers Auteurs... Paris...” in the early 1840s and is in excellent condition.
