A handsome and uncommon map that details the independent Republic of Texas, the western United States and Mexico. The lower left quadrant is filled with a large inset of Central America that is shown on the same scale as the main map. There is excellent detail throughout, with the title containing one of the few direct references to the Republic of Texas. Brue's embossed seal is just above the bottom border, and the map is surrounded by a decorative keyboard-style border that indicates longitude from Paris.
