According to the publisher’s information in the lower margin, this map was issued just two months prior to the public announcement of America’s purchase of the Louisiana Territory from Napoleonic France. The huge swath of land, the borders of which were inexact, cost the fledgling nation fifteen million dollars, or about $18/acre.

Geographic features and place names are sparse, though the information presented is surprisingly accurate for the period.

Published in London by Caddell & Davis in 1803.
