Arrowsmith, Aaron, 1750-1823. A map exhibiting all the new discoveries in the interior parts of North America, [1820-1833?] / inscribed by permission to the honorable governor and company of adventurers of England trading into Hudsons Bay, in testimony of their liberal communications to their most obedient and very humble servant, A. Arrowsmith, January 1st 1795.

A map exhibiting all the new discoveries in the interior parts of North America, [1820-1833?] / inscribed by permission to the honorable governor and company of adventurers of England trading into Hudsons Bay, in testimony of their liberal communications to their most obedient and very humble servant, A. Arrowsmith, January 1st 1795.

Printed map of North America, with manuscript additions and extensive manuscript revisions in red ink in the western half of the map, likely annotated in preparation for a subsequent edition of either Arrowsmith's Map Exhibiting All the New Discoveries in the Interior Parts of North America... or Arrowsmith's British North America. The manuscript additions to the map contain the names and locations of numerous Western forts and fur trading posts, including Fort Drew, Fort Halket, Fort Fraser, Fort McLeod, Fort St. James, Fort Alexandria, Fort Simpson, Fort McLaughlin, Fort Liard, Fort George, Fort Assiniboine, Fort Kootanie (Fort Kootenai), Fort Colville, Fort Kanloop (Fort Kamloops), Fort Vancouver, Fort Umqua, Fort Hall, Fort Boiss (Fort Boisse), Fort Nezperces (Fort Nez Perces), and Fort Nasqually (Fort Nisqually). Several rivers are drawn in the area of present-day California, Nevada, and Utah. In the lower margin of the map, there is a printed statement which notes additions to the map in 1811, 1818, 1819, 1820, 1824, 1833. The last two years may represent manuscript additions to the statement. A publication statement reading "London: Published 1 Jan 1. 1833 by S. Arrowsmith, No. 10 Soho Square... Hydrographer to His Majesty" also appears to be partially in manuscript. It is likely the additions to the map were completed after Aaron Arrowsmith's death by his son or other members of the Arrowsmith firm.
