Finely engraved map showing the Republic of Texas (Republica de Tejas). This example was originally published in Sanchez de Bustamante's Nuevo curso completo de geografia universal... para uso de los nuevos estados americanos, con un resumen preliminar de geografia antigua y sagrada. The map's geography is quite accurate, although Austin is placed to the east of the Brazos de Dios River, a bit north of present-day Houston.
