Large, handsome map with county development mostly in eastern Texas and only the three large counties of El Paso, Presidio, and Bexar organized in the west. The panhandle, noted as the Staked Plains (Elevated Table Land, without Wood or Water), includes a large section that is unorganized. Nice depiction of the wagon roads, many named, and several completed railroads. Insets include a Plan of Sabine Lake, Plan of the Northern part of Texas, and Plan of Galveston Bay. Decorative latticework border. Text on verso.


Condition: B+

The map image is very good to fine, but has clean splits at centerfold in upper and lower margins with lower split into map 1". Otherwise a clean and bright example on very nice paper.
