Highly detailed showing the region from the Rocky Mountains, from the Missouri River to the Red River, Plate River and Arkansas River, from the first French edition of Pike's classic account of the first U.S. government expedition to the Southwest.
Of all the editions of Pike, the maps in this French edition are the most beautifully engraved and on the best quality paper. The detail between the Missouri River and the Red River is truly extraordinary, and includes many original notes and observations which make it a source map for all maps which came after. Also includes highly detailed Indian Village and topographical information.
A fundamental map for Western American collections.
