Centered on Mexico and the Southwest, this map features an independent Republic of Texas in its smaller configuration, locating San Antonio de Bexar, San Felipe de Austin, Austin, and an army camp under the direction of General Sam Houston (likely referring to the victory at the Battle of San Jacinto). The Great Basin region is Pays Inconnus (Parts Unknown) with several spurious rivers flowing to the Pacific Ocean from lakes Timpanogos and Teguayo. The map has good detail of rivers and topography with numerous place names and Indian tribes named throughout. There is no attribution, though the editor is noted as Dopter below the bottom border.
