Nice example of Henry Schenk Tanner's map of the Republic of Texas, issued in Tanner's Universal Atlas.

The present example is the rare first state of Tanner's 1845 map of the Republic, pre-dating, the addition of a number of Texas Counties formed in 1845 and 18465.

The western part of the Republic is dominated by Bexar, Milam, Robertson and San Patricio Counties.

Fort Alamo is shown, along with a few dozen other place names. About 15 early roads are shown. Large inset shows Texas North of the Red River. A terrific map of the Republic, which was first issued in 1845, shortly before Tanner sold the rights to the Atlas to SA Mitchell.
