This map features the "Stovepipe" configuration that also has the western boundary of the state 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 first to name Dallas. There are no counties formed west of 99° - with the western region marked with several Indian Tribes. This is the most desirable map of Texas from this series of Mitchell school geographies.
