Very nice map of Texas as a Republic with a very uncertain western border, that is similar to Bradford's important map of 1835. The map shows the early Texas colonies and Mexican empresario land grants, including: John Cameron's Grant, Felisola's Grant, Burnet's Grant, Beale's Grant, Beale and Grant's Grant, McMullins & McGloine's Grant, De Leon's Grant, Power's Grant, Vhelin's Grant, Zavalla's Grant, Dewitt's Grant, Austin & Williams Grant with Stephen H. Austin's Grant inside of it. The map is filled with other early details including roads, topography, and much more. Included in John Monette's book of 1846, which was published by Harper & Brothers.
