    This great map of the two countries features the new, enlarged state of Texas. Bright colors delineate political boundaries and boldly mark the route of the "Great Oregon Rail Road" from New York to Oregon City. Portraits of Cortez, Washington, and Montezuma appear above the map; below are the great seals of the United States and Mexico, portraits of generals Taylor and Santa Anna, and a view of an Aztec temple. Text describes the history of the region culminating with the Mexican American War which had not yet ended at the time of publication.

Condition Description: Minor scattered foxing and a few small tears and one small hole in the portrait of Washington that have all been archivally repaired on verso. There are a few repaired edge tears confined to the blank margins and a few edge chips that have been reinforced on verso with old paper.

Ref: Wheat (TMW) #551.
