Wisconsin.

(United States, Carver's Claim, Green Bay, Lake Michigan, Lake Winnebago, Native American Territories, LaPoint, Chippewa, Crawford, Portage, Brown).

Issued 1847-9, Phila. by S.A. Mitchell & H.N. Burroughs.

Attractive and uncommon mid-19th century lithographed map with original hand color. Decorative interlaced border surrounds the map.

County configuration see in north varies from the 1846 version (for instance Portage & Brown now appears reducing Crawford) although Carver's huge 100 year old land claim is still named within Chippewa & Crawford counties.

Map sheet lightly evenly age toned as typical, right blank margin trimmed very narrow as typical due to large plate size of map, overall clean and well preserved with a fine age patina and visual appeal unique to this era.

Sheet measures c. 17 1/4"H x 13 5/8"W.

Printed area measures c. 15 1/2"H x 12 3/4"W.
