Title: Carte Des Etats-Unis D'Amerique,
Mapmaker: Lapie
Published: 1832

Carte Des Etats-Unis D'Amerique, Du Canada, Du Nouvelle Brunswick et d'une parte De La Nouvelle Bretagne...,

This map is one of the finest engraved maps of the United States published in a 19th century atlas. It shows all of the country including a large Oregon extending well to the north into todays British Columbia. While the south west and Texas were part of New Mexico they are also shown although the information is more sketchy. The United States is divided into its states and territories including very large Missouri and Arkansas territories. Most striking is the steel engraving which seems to note every small stream and mountain in the west. Most notable is the fact that this map shows the route of Hunt and Stuart between Oregon and the United States. Wheat notes this but cites only an 1837 edition that followed Irvings map of the routes in 1836. This map obviously precedes that map by four years and probably is based on an even earlier map by Lapie which is largely unobtainable. As such this is one of the very earliest-perhaps the earliest map to suggest that land travel to Oregon was possible. An unusual map.

Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 16 x 21 (inches),
