A great mid-nineteenth century map issued shortly after the Mexican War and reflecting incomplete knowledge of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo. The Southwest still shows the Mexican states of Upper California, New Mexico and Texas, but the U.S./Mexican boundary along the Gila River is shown in a light wash outline. The map is filled with interesting detail of Indian tribes, exploration and travel routes. There are large Missouri and Arkansas territories. Bold keyboard style border.
Some archival tape repairs in wide margins.
