By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | October 8, 2019

A new map of part of the United States of North America...exhibiting the Western Territory, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia &c., also the Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Ontario & Erie, with upper and lower Canada. 

From the latest authorities by John Cary, engraver, 1805.
A very long title for a very beautiful map!
