Description:

One of the Earliest Maps To Incorporate Lewis & Clark's Reports

Reduced size example of Matthew Carey's map of Missouri Territory, published shortly after the return of Lewis & Clark and in the same year as the issuance of their highly influential map of the region from the Missouri River to the Pacific Ocean (also issued by Matthew Carey).

Carey's map is a curious amalgam of information. While it includes highly up to date Lewis & Clark geographical details in certain portions of the map, other portions continue to rely upon Soulard and earlier material furnished by Lewis.

An essential map of Western American Collectors.
