This is a rather scarce late edition of the Carey & Lea map series, in 1827.  Florida Territory still only has 25K inhabitants and the capitol, Tallahassee, was just established in 1825.  The map color codes the 12 counties, and offers a great deal of detail as to waterways and other topographical features as well as to the early settlements.  Also, there is voluminous detail about Florida in three border areas -- climate, rivers, bays, population, history, and so on.
