Antique hand colored and printed color map of the United States of America in the mid-19th century, in German, with each state/territory numbered and a key in the lower left. This map shows a large amount of land in the middle of the country as Indian Territory. It also includes New Mexico as a large territory that stretches from Texas to California, Oregon Territory includes Washington and Idaho, Utah Territory is also huge, as is Missouri Territory, and even Minnesota (spelled Minisotah) Territory is quite large. The numeral on California does not match the key. Overall, this is a great map for anyone interested in the formation of the US. The color of the ocean is printed but the outlines are hand colored. Very good condition, some light water staining and toning at the edges, approx. 12.25 x 16.5 inches to the neatline.
