Map [34.5cm x 42.5cm] Map is hand colored and is in nice condition. This map shows the state of Deseret.
The Mormon State of Deseret only existed for a brief period in 1849 and early 1850, being superseded by the American acquisition of lands previously claimed by Mexico prior to the war with Mexico, and declared to be the territory of Utah by the United States government in the spring of 1850. The State of Deseret appears on only a handful of maps from the period, being largely ignored or unknown by contemporary cartographers. This map is taken from Joseph Meyer's Grosser Zietungs Atlas. A nice unusual map with the State of Deseret. This map predates the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo
