This handsome map portrays the Republic of Texas, the United States extends into present-day Canada, Russia is in control of Alaska, and Mexico's northern border is according to the Treaty of 1819 (mis-printed 1810). The map is surrounded by beautifully engraved scenes of North and Central America including local animals, a ship stranded in the polar sea, and a Mayan temple.
Faint soil and foxing, mostly in blank margin, overall very good.
