Map, 12' x 9", titled "Vereinigte Staaten von Nord-America und Mexico 1852". This is a scarce 1852 map of the United States and Mexico by Joseph Meyer. Depicts the United States at the height of the California Gold Rush and shortly after the annexation of Texas. The map covers the United States from Coast to coast and shows a very early configuration of the Trans-Mississippi. Nebraska is shown at its fullest, extending from Kansas to the Canadian border. Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Arizona, Colorado, West Virginia, and Nevada do not yet appear on the map. Shows the Mexico U.S. Boundary line prior to the Gadsden Purchase. This map was issued at the height of the American westward expansion. Two years before this map was drawn the California gold discovery of 1849 enticed thousands to embark upon the rigorous transcontinental emigration. Meanwhile, with the rise in territorial population to the west of the Mississippi, the eastern states were becoming increasingly divided over the issues of slavery and state vs. federal sovereignty. Within a few years these disputes would lead to the American Civil War.
