    David Burr was at this time the Geographer of the United States House of Representatives and Robert Greenhow was the Librarian of the State Department. Greenhow wrote the “Memoir, Historical and Political on the Northwest Coast of North America and the Adjacent Territories” to buttress the claim of the United States to the entire Oregon territory and the map accompanied the report. Burrs map is a finely crafted one. It is a fine large map of the entire west from The Aleutian Islands to Mexico and east nearly to the Mississippi River. It is a superbly crafted and finely drawn map with numerous details of the region. There is also an inset map of the northern Pacific. Its quality particularly shows in the Oregon and adjacent regions but in the southwest he has nothing new to say. Very good. Includes the pertaining disbound text of 228 pgs, which have sporadic foxing.

    Condition is very good with some very light foxing, and foxing to the text extract.
