Fine example of the first edition of C.F. Weiland's fine early map of Texas, New Mexico, the Rocky Mountains, Mexico and the Southwest, which includes the addition of a large insent map of the region from California to the Rocky Mountains which was not included in the American or French editions of the map.

In the main map, the emphasis of the map follows the maps of Humboldt and Pike issued in the years preceding this map, with the inclusion of information from the Stephen Long expedition to the Rocky Mountains. An open ended Lake Timpanagos is shown. The Rio Colorado and Rio Gila are relatively accurately depicted. The Spanish Road through Texas and New Mexico and then to Mexico City followed by Humboldt, is depicted. Nice detail in Texas, including several presidios and the Capital of the Province of Texas. Open ended Lake Timpanagos and details of the Spanish incursions and missions extending into Utah and Colorado. Perhaps even more fascinating is the inset of California, which does not appear in the American and French editions of the map. Neu California is named and the Mission System in California depicted. The mythical second Salt Lake is shown, with a tentative river still flowing the SF Bay. The western boundary of Lake Timpanagos is shown, with placenames in and around Salt Lake City which do not appear in the main map.

A table below the map is also added, listing the 21 states of Mexico, including Die Freien Indianer Lander (Free Indian Lands). Finely engraved rare map, from Weiland's serial publication, known as the Atlas von America, one of the rarest of all American Atlases.
