   M-4194 - Map of the New United States



M-4194 (Image:  12 3/8 x 17 3/8'')  A CORRECT MAP of the UNITED STATES of NORTH AMERICA…  London:  Thomas Bowen, c. 1787.  Published in Banke's New System of Universal Geography, Published by Royal Authority. Fine  engraved map with later hand-coloring.  Folds as issued.

An early map of the US and adjacent areas, issued just after the American Revolution. This handsome map depicts the United States along with the remaining British Territories and Spanish possessions in Florida, Louisiana and “New Mexico.” France did not regain possession of Louisiana until 1800 with the secret “Treaty of San Ildefonso”. Indian tribes are well noted throughout the map.  Topographical features are shown, and major cities, towns, and waterways are identified.  Additional notes are provided including “Country Full of Mines” (just west of the Mississippi), "Missouri R. its source unknown" and “Extensive Meadows Full of Buffalos” (north of the Missouri River).

Emanuel and Thomas Bowen (father & son respectively) produced maps which were considered some of “the best and most attractive maps of the century” (Moreland & Bannister: Antique Maps, p.166).
