Title : Map of the United States with contiguous British & Spanish Possessions..
Map maker : MELISH,J..
Date : Philadelphia, 1822.
Size : 56.7 x 42.5 inches. / 144.0 x 108.0 cm.
Colouring : Original outline colour by state or territory.

Description :.. compiled from the latest & best authorities by John Melish. Engraved by J. Vallance and [H.S.] Tanner. Entered according to Act of Congress the 16.th day of June 1820. Published by James Finlayson Agent Philad. a Successor to John Melish, improved to 1823.
The last edition of Melish's map of the United States, first published in 1816.
This edition has the three additional sheets at the bottom of the map (added in the second state of the 1822 edition) that expand the coverage of Mexico and the West Indies.
Compared to the first 1816 edition, there are many changes in the Great Plains area of the U.S.
The 1819 edition is the first map to show the U.S.-Mexican border as established by the Adams-Onis Treaty, and the second state of the map is the first to show Missouri as a state.
Melish died in 1822 and his plates were then used by James Finlayson to bring out a new state with himself as publisher in 1823.
The present copy is the corrected issue by J. Finlayson.
This great wall map was among the first to show the United States stretching from Atlantic to Pacific fulfilling its Manifest Destiny role in the eyes of viewers.
Walter Ristow couldn't heap enough praise on to this map.
Born in Scotland, he settled in the United States in 1811. He is credited with bringing American cartography up to world standards.
Nicely enhanced by the figure of an American bald eagle carrying olive branches, arrows and a striped shield.
