Catalogue Note

“A VERY BEAUTIFUL MAP IN THE BEST OF WYLD'S CARTOGRAPHIC STYLE,” which is in actuality a reduced reissue of his 1824 Map of North America without the top sheet of the Arctic region (Rumsey). This version “updates some of the western geography, showing the Tule Lakes in California, Fremont's or South Pass, F[or]ts Hall and Boise and the Oregon Trail. However, it keeps the outdated topography of the Great Basin and California used in the 1824 edition” (Rumsey). Accompanied by the original diaper-patterned maroon cloth case with Wyld’s paper label lettered “Mexico.” QUITE SCARCE.
