This scarce German map is a reduced version of Arrowsmith's 1841 Republic of Texas map showing the full extent of Texas's claims to the region of the upper Rio Grande, including Santa Fe, Taos and Albuquerque. The detailed map shows many roads, rivers, towns, and forts. Thirty land districts are outlined and named in a table at the top right corner. The northern panhandle is divided into twelve sections, with the notation (copied from Arrowsmith) that the land was well wooded and watered. Small inset of Galveston Bay.
