Map of Oregon Territory

Parker, Samuel

[Ithaca, NY]




Copper-engraved folding map. 34.7x58.8 cm. (13¾"x23¼").

The "earliest map of the Oregon interior with a pretense of accuracy." Wheat states that the map "represented a real advance, and it was made from personal observations." Issued in Samuel Parker's "Journal of an Exploring Tour beyond the Rocky Mountains," though this might be from a later edition, the maps were the same for the several issues. With folds.

Provenance: Alta California Books, 8/69

References: Wheat Transmississippi 438
