An intriguing and extremely scarce 1793 map of the southeastern portions of the United States, including Florida, by Cornelius Tiebow. The map covers from the Chesapeake Bay to the Florida Keys ad from the Mississippi River to the Atlantic seaboard. For an American imprint this map is extremely early. Predates the formation of Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia, and as such, North Carolina, and Georgia extend from the Atlantic to the Mississippi. The map features a wealth of American Indian information relating to the Cherokees, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, Muscogee, and Seminole, particularly in the western parts of Georgia. Numerous early forts are noted in the Mississippi and Wabash valleys. Identifies the Cumberland Settlements, among earliest group of settlements in modern day Tennessee. The Moravian Settlement, in North Carolina, is also noted. The map features an attractive title cartouche in the lower right corner showing an American Flag and surmounted by a bald eagle. Some may note a similarity to the Joseph Purcell map, which, although published in the same year, 1793, is a considerably updated reissue of the present map. This map was issued in William Gordon's History of the Rise on the United States as well as Gilbert Imlay's A Topographical Description.
