Halifax, Lawson (engraved by).
London. [ 1813].
Engraved map, approximately 7 1/2 x 9 inches on sheet size 8 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches. Even toning, good condition. While published several years after the Lewis and Clark expedition, the geography of western America reflects an earlier era. There are no Rocky Mountains, but a very long "River of the West" which flows from the "Entrance of Juan de Fuca" to an Oregon River just west of the "Heads of the Mississippi." The United States occupies the eastern seaboard, with a wide mostly empty expanse to the west. New Mexico and Louisiana are marked as areas to the west of the Mississippi in the south, with "Quivira" to the north and New Albion to the west. Teguayo is marked in what is now the Salt Lake region. Engraved for Barclays Dictionary by Lawson Halifax. Item #49062
