This strikingly decorative map of North America shows the Republic of Texas, the United States extending into present-day Canada (mostly British Columbia), Alaska still being Russian owned, and Mexico's northern border reaching to Oregon. The map is surrounded by beautifully allegorical scenes of North and Central America including local animals, a ship stranded in the polar sea, and a Mayan temple. The population table shows 19 million people in US. Colored.
