A precisely engraved map of the United States by Thomas G. Bradford, a Boston map publisher, showing the nation early in the fourth decade of the nineteenth century. This map is very up-to-date in showing the political and topographical situation with great accuracy. Detail is very good, showing rivers, lakes, states, territories, and major towns. In the west, four large territories are shown, independent Texas is named, Indian tribes are located, and the "Great American Desert" is indicated running from the border with "British America" to Texas. A good American map of the nation in its period of western expansion.
