Stati-Uniti dell-America Settentrionale dalle piu Recenti Mappe.

Venice: G. Tasso, 1832. An unusual map from an Italian edition of Le Sage's historical atlas. The map is credited to Buchon in the title cartouche, who originated the map in 1825. This edition was published by Girolamo Tasso. The map illustrates the United States from the east coast up to the Rocky Mountains, and shows the acquisition of various territories up to 1825, including the Louisiana Purchase. Major cities, forts, roads and Indian villages are located. There is a color key at lower left, and the routes of Long and Talcott are noted. There are interesting early details in Oregon & the Missouri Territories, especially in the northwest and plains. The uncolored area on the left is labeled "Messicana", and includes the "Provincia de Texas", which would become an independent republic in four years. There is also an outline of "Nuovo Messico" (New Mexico). 18 1/4 x 13 1/2". Restoration to margins. Original color touched up. Ref: Phillips (A) #127-21b. Very good overall. Item #21266

Price: $750.00
