Map of Oregon and Upper California from the surveys of John Charles Fremont and others authorities drawn by Charles Preuss…1848
John Charles Fremont / Charles Preuss
Baltimore, 1848 (published)
49.5 x 42.5 cm (19.5 x 17 in)
Fremont's landmark map of the West, focusing on California, Arizona, Utah, and Nevada.
The present issue of the map, which was originally published with Frémont's Geographical Memoir Upon Upper California, came with California Messages and Correspondence, House Ex. Doc. 17, 31st Congress, 1st Session, 1850, and is smaller than the original issue, being confined to the California and Great Basin portions, but is on the same scale. Wheat notes that this issue "more fully renders Fremont’s routes of 1846 in the Central Valley than do the original issues of 1848 and 1849."
