Auction 124, Lot 316

"Mexico, Mittel-America, Texas", Flemming, Carl

Subject: United States, Texas & Mexico

Period: 1852 (circa)


Color: Hand Color

16.3 x 13 inches
41.4 x 33 cm

Nice German map that shows early territorial and state borders in the Southwest. California had just become a state in 1850, and Texas is presented with its final, post-1850 borders. A notation (in German) in the panhandle of Texas places the "summer range of the Comanches." The topography in the Southwest and Great Basin region is mostly spurious. The map extends to include all of Central America. There is a color-coded key at bottom.


Condition: B+

A few spots of foxing. The original outline color was done by hand, but the ocean is printed color. Bottom margin with a short tear just shy of the map.

Estimate: $150 - $200
