The map was published by Johann Walch in the 1803 edition of his Allgemeiner Atlas, Augsburg, Germany. The image area measures 18.6 x 22 cm [7¼" x 8½"]. Kentucky is labeled, but not Tennessee. There is a large Indiana and no Ohio. There is good detail of the Great Lakes, and numerous Indian tribes are named.
The Spanish territory of Florida is divided into East and West, with the western section extending to the Mississippi River. The map has a decorative swash title: Die Vereingten Staaten von Nord-Amerika. The distance scale is calibrated in German miles. This map is in very good condition, with original hand color and no rips or tears.
A previous owner has neatly penned the title, in English, in the upper margin. The map is blank on the back, with no printing on the reverse side. Please see the scans, which include front and back views of the full sheet, and feel free to ask any questions. This is an original , authentic antique map, not a reproduction or modern reprint, and it is fully guaranteed to be genuine.
It would be an outstanding addition to your collection and would make a compelling display. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
