Scarce map created with great attention to detail, including many Indian Tribes and early settlements west of the Mississippi River, and a number of settlements located in Florida and along the Gulf Coast. There are many place names along the California Coast and reaches as far north as C. Mendocin. The Pacific Northwest and west of the Upper Mississippi is left blank, unlike earlier maps, because of the lack of knowledge of the area.
