Map of the United States, 1854

David Rumsey Map Collection,

DESCRIZIONE

"33rd Cong.,1st Sess., Senate Ex Doc. No.77. From a government publication on tax collection, published in July of 1854 (see our copy). Shows Kansas and Nebraska (possibly the first government map to do so) and the Gadsden purchase. Slightly larger scale than Burr's 1839 Map of the U.S., and, of course, entirely different western topography. However, there is a graphic similarity (lettering, overall look) between this and the earlier map. Burr is listed on the map as ""Draftsman U.S. Senate."" Shows Ports. States and districts boundaries indicated in red and yellow outline. Depth of water shown by soundings. Prime meridians are Greenwich and Washington, D.C. 33rd Cong.,1st Sess., Senate Ex Doc. No.77. From a government publication on tax collection, published in July of 1854 (see our copy). Shows Kansas and Nebraska (possibly the first government map to do so) and the Gadsden purchase.
