This very finely engraved map is beautifully rendered and colored in a delicate pallet of pastel tones. Centered on Indian Territory, the map shows a railroad between Galveston and Houston which extends to Austin with a spur to Washington. No other railroads are shown. San Antonio is the tiny village S. Antonio de Bexar. Dallas is named. Northwest of Austin on the River Llano are "German Settlements." There is excellent detail throughout of rivers and streams. Cartography is credited "According to Calvin, Smith and Tanner".
Pristine example with a hint of centerfold toning that is actually from darker backstrap on verso.
