Great map that features the Independent Republic of Texas. The southwest is here called "Upper New California" while the Baja is "Lower or Old California." Good detail for its time of the topography and watershed. Extends to include all of Central America, and Cuba. Cross-section along the bottom shows elevation of major mountains and volcanoes. Published by Orr & Company.
Dark impression and fine original coloring with original margins. Hint of offsetting, still very good to fine.
