The Republic of Texas is shown with its northern boundary extending to 42° North latitude. A large California Territory extends nearly to Texas with a small New Mexico sandwiched in between. Interesting versions of treaty boundaries are drawn and a table of explanations provides treaty dates. Sometimes referred to as the 'Tables Map', (the prominent tables on each side of the map) it offers selected statistical information including details on the "Three Divisions" of Texas. Probably prepared for the General Land Office to show Guadeloupe-Hidalgo treaty lines (Wheat). Lithographed by Duval in Philadelphia. With tables the image measures 33" x 13.5".
