    This small map came out of the highly desirable report on the boundary survey between the Republic of Texas and the United States. Streeter calls this publication of "prime importance" and the maps "the most important in Texas history, in that they show the final boundary between Texas and the U.S. from the Gulf of Mexico to the Red River."

The map itself, in strip-style format, covers the area from approximately Shelburne, through Ferry Lake, to just north of Black Bayou. It is drawn on a detailed scale of about 0.7" per mile. Below the map are the signatures of J.H. Overton and J.R. Conway from the United States Surveyorís Office, and George Smyth and A.B. Gray on the Texas side. Authenticated by Lt. Col. James Kearney. Engraved by W.J. Stone.

Condition Description: Issued folding with light soiling and a few extraneous creases.

Ref: Streeter #1442.

Estimate:
$200.00 - $250.00
