Nice German map showing the Southwest shortly after the acquisition of Upper California from Mexico. Texas is presented with its pre-Compromise of 1850 borders, here shown stretching west to the Sierra Madre mountains. A notation (in German) in the panhandle of Texas shows 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.
