A highly detailed world map recording the very latest of the geographic discoveries, particularly along the northwest coast of America and in the Arctic. An early owner has furthered this with manuscript ink additions, charting discoveries made by Robert McClure on his first navigation of the northwest passage in 1850-54. Contains a bold depiction of Texas as a Republic, here distinctly colored in purple and with a separate entry in the text surround listing its population as 38,000.
The surrounding panels of text provide an extraordinary amount of information on the countries of the world: population, size of countries, chief productions, important towns and cities, values of imports and exports, national debt, number of naval vessels and distances.
