NORTH AMERICA, SHEET IX., Parts of Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. Artist/engraver/cartographer: Cartography by Tanner, Smith. Engraved by J & C Walker. Provenance: "Maps of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. A new edition, corrected to the present time", published by Charles Knight & Co, 22 Ludgate Street, London [SDUK Atlas]. Type: Antique steel engraved map with original outline hand colouring. The map was originally engraved in 1833 (this edition was printed later); some Indian settlements, villages and tribes existing in 1833 are marked on the map as tipi (teepee) symbols. Chicago is marked on the map, along with the then "proposed canal which will unite the Gulfs of St Lawrence and Mexico Portage" which was eventually completed in 1900 as the Chicago Drainage Canal (now known as the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal).
