Early, large-scale, territorial map by the Surveyor Generals Office, Santa Fe New Mexico. Extends into the future Colorado and includes all of today's Arizona. The area of present-day New Mexico is depicted with limited surveying, and naming numerous towns and villages. In today's Arizona the cartographic information is almost non-existent, locating two Indian Reservations, a few rivers and mountain ranges. Hachuring indicates those private and pueblo claims, and townships that have been surveyed.
All folds and one tear closed and reinforced on verso. A couple small areas with loss at fold intersections. Modern coloring.
