Pocket Map of the Young Republic, Engraved with Eagle

54. [MAP]. SCHOYER, Solomon. Map of the United States Drawn from the Most Approved Surveys Published by Solomon Schoyer.New York Engraved by G. W. Merchant Albany 1826. Copper-engraved map on bank note paper, original outline coloring, at lower left is a large eagle. 41 x 51 cm; 16-1/4 x 20-1/8 inches. Pocket map, folded into original stiff red paper covers. Moderately foxed and some splits at folds (but no losses).

      The map shows the Young Republic with its 23 states and the territories of Arkansas, Northwest, Michigan, and Missouri, the latter of which extends beyond the Rockies and to the present Canadian border. The map shows the area beyond Rio del Norte, but the geography of Texas remains distorted and vacant, with Texas going only slightly beyond the Colorado River and little located other than San Antonio and the river system. ($300-600)
