Mississippi River drainage well depicted, but regions west of the Rockies are still largely unexplored. Upper California is New Albion. Ft. Astoria and Clatsop are shown in Oregon Territory. Northwest Alaska is still badly misshaped.
Measures 9 3/4 by 13 inches, various older tape mends at the margins or verso, various tears at the margin, some light staining or foxing.
