A Plat Exhibiting the State of the Surveys of the State of Florida. 1849.
Surveyor Generals Office. 1849.
Map, black and white, 21 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches, multiple folds as issued. A particularly clean and bright copy: trimmed to the neat line for 2/3 of left margin, very light foxing at top left border scarcely visible, crease at left edge and one small crease in map.
A fascinating look at Florida in the middle of the 19th century, with much surveying completed (including along the full length of the east coast), but with the full expanse of the lower interior of the peninsula unsurveyed. There the Everglades are marked with a large Lake O-Kee-Cho-Bee above them. #35517
