This very large, hand colored early survey map of Washington Territory was conducted under the the supervision of James Tilton, Surveyor General. The Williamette Medidian from Portland to Puget Sound and the 4th Standard Parallel extending west to Gray's Harbor have been surveyed, but much of the rest of the cartographical information is speculative at best. However, Wheat notes that the map is important in showing the Hudson's Bay Company's posts at Fort Okinakane and Fort Colville, along with the location of Lake Chelan, east of the Cascades. The U.S. Military Road from Ft. Steilacoom to Walla Walla is shown. The road proceeds from Seattle, up the White River, across Natchess Pass and down to Fort Walla Walla, by the valley of the Yakama River. The map also shows Stevens Route for the Pacific R.R., coming up the Cedar River from Seattle, crossing over an unnamed pass south of Snoqualmoo Pass and proceeding down the Yakama River. Curiously, no surveys had been made or were yet contemplated through this region. This is an extremely important map of the State of Washington as a territory and rare. Condition: Very fine wide margins, with three folds, some discoloration on top of folds not affecting image.
