This large map is a scarce issue of Texas by the little-known H.R. Page & Co. firm of Chicago. County development is shown in attractive full hand color, which is uncommon for this late date. The map locates cities, towns, rivers, lakes, and an extensive railroad network. Unlike earlier editions, this map does not contain an inset of Presidio and El Paso, but instead oddly squeezes these counties in upside down in the interior of Mexico without hand coloring.
