Title : The Traveller's Guide. A Map Of The Roads, Canals And Steam Boat Routes Of The United States ... Designed for the use of Travellers, By H.S. Tanner..
Map maker : TANNER, H.S..
Date : Philadelphia, 1825.
Size : 17.5 x 22.1 inches. / 44.5 x 56.2 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Rare first edition of Tanner's travel map in pocket map form, in it original red leather covers, with the map and no text, as issued. Ristow says the first edition was 1834, and while that was the first issue of the enlarged guide with text, this 1825 map is from the same plate as the 1834 map and thus should be seen as the first edition of the guide.
The entire lower right corner of the map is taken up with lists of "Steam Boat Routes Throughout the United States," which are keyed to letters in the map margins. In the 1834 and later editions, these lists are replaced with inset maps of U.S. cities, and the lists are given, along with added stage and railroad routes, in the body of the text.
This interesting early map of the U.S. still shows the Five Civilized Tribes of the Indian Nation in their respective locations throughout the southeast. The western edge of the new country is sparsely populated, and the Oregon Territory begins just above Missouri.
