Color map of Florida with counties as they existed in 1850, with insets of Pensacola, Tallahassee, and Saint Augustine. Originally published by Thomas Cowperthwait in the 1850 edition of Mitchell's A New Universal Atlas.

When this map was published, Florida had only been a state for five years. Before that it had been a US territory since being ceded to the US by Spain as par of the Adams-Onís Treaty. As part of that same treaty, Spain surrendered its claims to the Pacific Northwest and the United States recognized Spanish sovereignty over Texas (we all know how that worked out).

This is a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle. We made test orders of different puzzles and found this to be the best-constructed one. The pieces are thick - essentially wood, and you should have no trouble separating them during unboxing. They arrive in an attractive mesh bag, and there's also a full-size poster of the map to refer to since the image on the box front is somewhat small.

Dimensions: 15”w x 20-1/2”h
