The map is likely a compilation of earlier publications on the geology of Texas. Prepared by J.A. Udden, C.L. Baker and Emil Bose. An extensive legend explains each geological type. Very interesting vertical sections show in detail the various geological formations beneath the surface at four locations: Northern Trans-Pecos, Southern Trans-Pecos, Llano Estacardo, and Central and Coastal Plains.
