Philadelphia. S. Augustus Mitchell. 1848. Copyright line reads 1845 by H.N. Burroughs.
Map, original handcolor, decorative border, 15 1/2 x 12 3/4 inches on sheet 17 1/4 x 14 inches. Light toning and soiling to margins, pinholes from original binding visible along left margin, very faint scattered foxing; overall very good condition. The uncommon 1848 edition of Mitchell's imposing map of the West publicised in Mitchell's Universal Atlas, showing Oregon and California stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountains - a splendid sight! This was a seminal period for the immigration to Oregon Territory. Oregon City and Fort Vancouver are marked along with "Dr Whitman's" for the Whitman mission and Ft. Nisqually. More than a dozen Indian nations in the Oregon Territory are named. The Great Interior Basin of California is marked unexplored. Item #35386
