"A Map Of The United States Of America Drawn From A Number Of Critical Researches By A.Arrowsmith, Hydrographer To H.R.H The Prince Of Wales, No.10 Soho Square". Printed on four sheets and offered here as two pairs joined. First published in 1796 and then updated for 1802, this edition of the map is from 1808 when Arrowsmith moved to premises in Soho Square. The map was separately published and regularly updated, reporting current geographical knowledge in the United States back to London. Detail extends westwards to the Mississippi, Arkansas and Missouri Rivers. In fact, it was the plotting of the Missouri River on this map that encouraged Lewis and Clark to explore the Missouri River as a direct route to the Pacific. Textual annotations reveal early results of European explorations in these regions and information garnered through the Hudson's Bay Company. A landmark map, here in very good condition neither having been mounted on canvas and displayed on a wall, nor having been dissected and folded. An unusual and attractive example in its original sheets.
