MAP SHOWING TEXAS AND SOUTHWEST TERRITORY

The University of Texas dates this map between 1826-1832. The major rivers extending into the interior of the western territories are properly named. The Red River, the Rio Gila, the Colorado River, the Arkansas River, etc, etc. There are sections of land still remaining and marked unexplored. The strange layout of what soon will be the Republic of Texas is shown. The vast land called New California. Georgia extends from the Atlantic to the Mississippi River.
There is only one road, beginning at Natchitoches, La down through Texas into Mexico and ending near Mexico City. Map is very nicely hand colored, full margins all around, folded in center being from the scarce Edinburgh Geographical and Historical Atlas. At the top center, a minor archival acid free mend on the reverse. Otherwise clean, no odors, no stains. This is indeed a very historical map showing the American Southwest and Texas BEFORE they came into existence. Map measures about 14 x 20" on heavy paper stock.
The University of Texas calls this map "The Portal of Texas History".
