An attractive map that shows all of North America, the Caribbean, and the northern portion of South America. This map was made just before Texas declared its independence in 1836, and shows Texas as a province within Mexico. The border between the United States and Canada extends into present-day British Columbia, reflecting U.S. interests in the area. Topography is depicted by hachure, and many native tribes are noted. The title is embellished with flourishes and five distance scales. Engraved by Thierry.
