One of the important obtainable maps of California and the American west. Important depiction of the west at a time of dramatic change, both in terms of geographic discovery and political and economic development. Includes the pre-Gadsden Purchase borders in lower Arizona and New Mexico. Numerous mining towns are named in California, including Auburn, Columa [sic], Marysville, Yuba City, Downieville, etc., plus many Native American tribal names. Has early county configurations and shows the routes of Lewis and Clark, Fremont, Kearney, and Cooke, as well as the Spanish and Oregon Trails. Washington territory was formed March 2, 1853--not showing the Gadsden Purchase indicates the date of the map is 1853. However, Rumsey states the 1853 edition has the title “A new map of the state of California, the territories of Oregon & Utah, and the chief part of New Mexico.” Clean with great hand color. 12.75 x 15.75
