A nice map showing early territorial and state borders in the Southwest. 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." The topography in the Southwest and Great Basin region is mostly spurious. The map extends to include all of Central America, with a color-coded key at bottom.
