(West) A New Map Of The State Of California, The Territories Of Oregon
Issued probably in 1859, this map catches a important glimpse of the changing West, thanks to one little notation in far western Kansas territory, and that is the inclusion of the “GOLD REGION” shown along the front range of what is present day Colorado. While the western territories look very similar to the borders seen three or four years prior, where the continental divide seperates Washington, Oregon and Utah from the expansive territories of Kansas and Nebraska on the other side, there are transitions soon to come. This beautifully hand colored map identifies the primitive counties, as well as major trails, and expedition routes. Condition is very good with some marginal tears.
Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 13 x 16(inches),
