THOMAS, COWPERTHWAIT & CO.
Map of Texas from the most recent authorities [from S.A. Mitchell’s A New Universal Atlas, Philadelphia, 1850].
12-1/8” x 15”. Original color. Excellent condition.
A large-scale atlas map of Texas, published shortly after this frontier state’s boundaries were redrawn by the Compromise of 1850. The Texas Panhandle and the neighboring New Mexico settlements are shown in inset. Settlement is restricted to the eastern part of the state, with almost all of north Texas Taken up by three oversized counties (Nacogdoches, Robertson and Milam.) Bexar County extends west from San Antonio to include all of the Hill Country, Permian Basin and Trans-Pecos. A handsome map for display.
Phillips, Atlases, 800 (not noting the revision to the map of Texas from the 1849 ed. of the atlas.)
