This beautifully engraved chart shows the Independent Republic of Texas with the stovepipe extension up to past 40°. The Midwest is labelled Nebraska, and Western Territory is wedged between Arkansas and Texas and extends north to the Kanzas River. Wisconsin is identified but there is no sign of Minnesota, instead a vast and ill-defined area is simply Dacota. The map extends to include all of Texas to show Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Taos. The Spanish Road is not shown on this edition, but an unnamed road runs from Santa Fe to the Arkansas River and on to Little Rock. The map is densely engraved with hundreds of towns and villages named, fine watershed detail and locates many Indian villages. Surrounded in a bold keyboard style border. Published by Longman & Co.
A nice impression with a short centerfold separation confined to the top blank margin that has been closed on verso with archival material.
