Map of the State of Missouri from An Atlas of the United States of North America.

London: Hinton, Simpkin & Marshall, 1832. Unbound. Approximately 16.5” x 11” including margins. A nice map with a clear and strong image. Attractively hand-colored. Wide margins. Publisher’s fold.

A very attractive early statehood map (Missouri became a state in 1821) published prior to the Platt Purchase and showing mostly wide-open spaces with only a handful of cities or towns not located on immediately along either the Mississippi or Missouri Rivers: Bartonsville (a lost city), Bowlingreen (Bowling Green), Columbia, Elizabeth (not St. Elizabeth so probably a lost city), Farmington, Frankfort (probably now Union), Fredericktown, Fufton (Fulton?), Greenville, Lewiston, New London, Palmyra, Potosi (including the lead mines), and Troy.

Tribal lands labeled Kickapoos, Delawares, and Shawnees dominate the southwest, and a large area north of Chariton County is labeled “Bounty Lands”. (Bounty lands were tracts of land set aside as partial payment for volunteers who served in War of 1812.). Very good. Item #008759

Scarce when colored. As of 2108, OCLC shows only two examples held by institutions. Three auction records are shown at the Rare Book Hub, and two uncolored examples are for sale in the trade.

Price: $400.00
