Fascinating map of North America, showing an immense Russian Possessions (Alaska), extending down to 54-40 northern border of Oregon Territory.
Buenaventura River extends from Rockies to San Francisco Bay. Rocky Mountains extend from Central Mexico to Arctic Circle. Mississippi River drainage well depicted, but regions west of Rockies are still largely unexplored. Upper California is New Albion. Ft. Astoria and Clatsop shown in Oregon Territory. NW Alaska still badly mishaped. A striking map from an early edition of Finley's Atlas.
This map shows Texas still as part of Mexico considered Interior Possession
