'North America' by Joseph Wilson Lowry (1859). Antique engraved atlas map with original hand colour/color, 49.5 x 36.5cm, 19.5 x 14.25 inches; Please note that this is a folding map.

Scarce double page map showing early territorial boundaries of the United States throughout the Transmississippi West. Nebraska Territory extends west to the Rocky Mountains and north to Canada. Oregon & Washington Territories extend from Nebraska to the Pacific. Washington Territory had been organized from the half of Oregon Territory north of 46° north and the Columbia River in 1853. The western half of Oregon Territory as shown was admitted as the thirty-third state, Oregon, in 1859 (the year of publication), with the remainder transferred to Washington Territory. The map is notable for the ephemeral naming of "Gadsden or Arizona" in the area south of the Gila River. This is the area between the line created by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and the Gadsden Purchase of 1854, which resulted in the inclusion of Tuscon and Phoenix within what is now the United States. Maps which formally name Arizona as Gadsden are few and very rare. Kansas, extends from Missouri to the Rocky Mountains. New Mexico and Utah run from California to (and beyond) the Rocky Mountains. An oversize Texas includes all of Indian Territory
