    Description

    Keeler's Map of the U. S. Territories. Large folding map bound into a book, titled on the cover: "Keeler's Map of the U. S. Territories, Pacific R. R. Routes, Mineral Lands and Indian Reservations. 1867." W. J. Keeler worked for the Indian Bureau in Washington, D.C. He wrote an introduction to the work which is pasted on the back of the cover. It stresses the accuracy of the map, the "Indian troubles", settlement, the expansion of the railroad and vast mineral wealth. "It is the attraction of these hidden treasures, more than anything else, that is drawing these great lines of railroads across the Continent; and in these treasures, the enterprising men who are urging these magnificent works forward, have their surest guarantee of success." The hand-colored map measures 58" x 49" and is mounted to a linen backing, as issued. There is some separation or loss at the folds and light aging, but it is in very good condition overall. The covers of the binding are detached, the spine is missing and there is wear to the extremities, as shown.
