(West) Map of Oregon and Upper California From the...
This great map of the west was a cartographic landmark and one of the great western maps of all time. It was compiled from information gleaned from each of Fremont's first three expeditions and shows the entire West from Fort Laramie to the Pacific and contains details from Fremont's travels and others.. The addition of information about the Great Basin was a major advance. It is not without faults, and has Fremont's distinctive east west mountain chain south of the Great Basin Still its detail is amazing and it did much to elaborate on the sketchy knowledge of the period. Wheat 559.
This beautiful instance of the map comes from the text "Geographical Memoir Upon Upper California, In Illustration of His Map..." and is included with the map. The text is loose without covers, but is clean and solid.
Exceptional, this is probably the nicest instance of the map we've handled, condition is very good, a solid sheet with good margins. Image size is approximately 33 x 26.5 (inches)
