(North America) Amerique Septentrionale ou Colombie, Dressee par P. Lapie, Geographe
An uncommon small map by Lapie that shows the latest that was known of the continent. With the additions of Lewis & Clark to the West, as well as the Humboldt and Pike information to the Southwest, it is a view of very up to date view for the period. Shows the vast "Columbia" territory west of the continental divide reaching up into present day British Columbia, while east of the divide is the "Missouri" Territory which spans from the Canadian border down to present day Oklahoma border.
While pretty solid for the central portion of the continent, speculation continues in the far north as northern Alaska opens into a vast Northwest Passage that connects easily to Baffin Bay and the Atlantic.
Condition very good. Image size is approximately 12 x 9(inches)
