Carte Geographique, Historique et Statistique de l'Amerique.


Two maps of North and South America on a single sheet from the Atlas Geographique, Statistique, Historique, et Cronologique des Deux Ameriques, the French version of Carey & Lea's American Atlas, published in Paris by J. Carez. The highly detailed and accurate maps show the political divisions of the continents. In the North America map, British claims in the northwest extend down to the Columbia River, encompassing much of what is now the state of Washington; Mexico is in control of the Southwest, from California to New Orleans; and the U.S. states are identified by means of a number key. The maps are surrounded on three sides by text describing the geography, political divisions, and history of the continents.
