This handsome, large map features the independent Republic of Texas with its southern border on the Rio Grande and the northern border on the Arkansas, thus incorporating Santa Fe. Alaska is noted as a Russian Possession, and the islands in the South Pacific are well-delineated.
A sturdy map with nice old color. There is a little offsetting, but it is not distracting. One extraneous crease reinforced on verso.
