  • Map of the United States in North America with the British, French and Spanish Dominions adjoining, according to the Treaty of 1783.

    An interesting map for the young nation, issued just five months after the preliminary articles of peace were agreed to and as great change continued. Uniquely this instance includes appropriate hand color distinguishing the regional boundaries, including the full scope of Virginia as it was, reaching up into the present Midwest. Just as the states of the Carolinas and Georgia are bounded by the Mississippi River, Virginia is likewise, but includes everything north of the Ohio River. It was a vast stretch of land that would be turned over to the U.S. the year after this map was made. Featured in E. M. Sanchez-Saavedra's
    "Description of the Country, Virginia's Cartographers and Their Maps
    1607-1881" and included as a reproduction.
