This handsome map covers the region of present day southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Mexico. Excellent detail, particularly of the Jesuit missions in Mexico and the Southwest, and of the numerous Indian tribes. The map locates San Diego, Santa Fe, Taos, Acapulco, Cabo St. Lucas and many towns along the Sea of Cortez and Baja Peninsula. Six distance scales at lower right.
Nice impression with two tiny worm tracks in the top blank margin, away from the image.
