Item Information

Title:
United States showing routes of principal explorers and early roads and highways
Description:
America Transformed: Frank Bond, a General Land Office surveyor, draftsman, and finally Chief Clerk, created this thematic, historical map that was atypical of other GLO publications. He compiled the major Spanish, Dutch, French, British, and American routes during four centuries of Euro-American exploration. This colorful presentation was overlaid on a standard base map that showed the extent of township surveys by the beginning of the 20th century. The map demonstrated the current state of geographical knowledge and suggested that by this time there was little unmapped land.
