Large engraved map of the United States segmented and mounted to original linen back with silk edging. 36¼x59 inches overall, cleanly folding into original marbled paper self-wrappers; original hand-color in outline; minor spotting and bits of lost selvage but overall fine and attractive.

An excellent example of Ristow’s fifth state of the improved 1818 edition of this significant piece of American cartography, the first accurate depiction of the continental United States presented as a unified landmass between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Melish’s important document produced an early visual flicker to the idea of Manifest Destiny and established the tone of the hundred years to follow in which the fledgling nation turned its focus from east to west and settled the continent.

“At a glance the whole extent of the United States territory from sea to sea… The view is complete and leaves nothing to be wished for.” - John Melish regarding his own map (Mapping the West).

And: An autograph letter signed by John Arrowsmith to publisher John Murray on “Joynson/1859” watermarked laid paper discussing the production of the present map:

10 Soho Square Nov. 30th 1859

My Dear Sir,

This morning I rec’d from Capt.n McClintock from Dublin, two charts with the Tracks of the Fox laid down.

I have transferred the tracks to a copy of the map which is to accompany his book, but I shall not get the engraving finished till tomorrow night & it will be the middle of the day on Friday before I can show you a proof.

Does McClintock’s book bear the date 1859 or does it bear that of 1860?

If you have a loose copy of the chart showing the drift of the Fox down Baffin Bay, be good enough to send it.
