This map features the "Stovepipe" configuration showing Texas at its largest extent when first admitted to the Union. It shows the western boundary at the Rio Grande del Norte, putting Santa Fe in Texas. Part of Texas continues to the northwest above Taos in an area labeled the Green Mountains. This edition is the first to name Dallas. There are no counties formed west of about 98°, but there is a large unorganized Bexar region above San Antonio de Bexar and below a region labeled Wild Horses. In the western region a number of Indian tribes are named. This is the most desirable map of Texas from the Mitchell school geographies.
Condition Description: A little marginal toning and foxing with some just entering map at left, else very good.
