[New York]. Asher & Adams. Copyright 1874.
Map on cloth backing, original handcolor, 16 x 22 1/2 inches on sheet 17 1/4 x 24 inches, NEVER FOLDED. Light general toning; small chips to right corners and 2 x 1/8 inch abraded strip along right edge, all well outside map area and minimized by backing; very good condition. A detailed map of Oregon, with some interestingly inaccurate depictions of the physical geography of Oregon, which are corrected in late editions of the map. The survey grids indicate very little of the eastern portion of the state as having been surveyed. The Snake River above 45 degree latitude follows very closely the 117 degree of longitude line (corrected in later maps to show the wide curve of the river at this point); in Grant county Lake Harney is shown as a single large lake, whereas in later maps it appears with Malheur Lake.
