Map of the United States Drawn from the most approved Surveys .
New York?: I. Starr?], 1825. Engraved folding pocket map, hand-colored in outline (16 ½ x 20 inches, 420x510 mm). Folds into publisher's morocco, stamped in gilt on the upper cover “U. States.” Condition: Minor separations at intersecting folds, short tear extending from the right margin into the gradients; covers worn. Provenance : Andrew Bradford (contemporary signature on the front pastedown); William Mastons (early signature on the front pastedown). early and unrecorded pocket map of the united states. This anonymous map of the United States depicts much of the known regions of the continent to that point, extending far enough west to show all of Texas (still, of course, part of Mexico). The map is largely up to date, accurately depicting the territorial changes (although it shows an 1821-1824 Arkansas Territory). The vast majority of the western portion of the map is a large Missouri Territory, with the Rocky Mountain named. The detail on the map is tremendous, with a tremendous number of towns, cities, roads, etc. named east of the Mississippi, and showing the locations of many Indian tribes. Solomon Schoyer issued a similar map in 1826, but with an engraving of an eagle in the lower left. Another map as the above was issued in 1826, published in New York by I. Starr and Co. In seems likely that each of these maps are derivative of Melish and/or Finley.
