This very scarce map was issued in the First Edition of “The American Lawyer” by Delos W. Beadle. The book was a guide to the laws and regulations of the various states.
This map depicts the new State of California and Territories of Utah and New Mexico. The Gold Region in California is noted, the exploratory routes of Fremont and Kearney are shown, and Indian Tribes are located. Major cities and towns, and waterways are also located. Utah and New Mexico Territories extend westward to California (prior to Nevada and Arizona Territories).
