Nice German map showing an evolving configuration in the Southwest. While the coloring does not reflect the engraved borders of the map, California had just become a state in 1850 and Texas is presented with its final, post 1850 borders. A notation (in German) in the panhandle of Texas shows the "summer range of the Comanches," while an early appearance of New Mexico Territory is shown to the east of the Sierra Madre. The map extends to include all of Central America with a color-coded key at bottom.
