This map of the American West is one of the most highly respected of its time, despite Fremont’s famous topographical error showing an east-west mountain range across the unexplored area of the Great Basin. The map was changed over time, with this one concentrating on California, but also including parts of present-day Arizona and Utah. Most topographical renderings are quite accurate, and this map is considered the most important nineteenth-century map of the area. The El Dorado or Gold Regions are shown on the south fork of the American River and the upper course of the Feather River.

Condition: This map is in A condition. Issued folding, there are some minor separations at folds.
