Description

Detailed map of the Republic of Texas, published by Jeremiah Greenleaf.

Scarce and interesting map of the Republic of Texas. Greenleaf's map follows David Burr's map of 1833, distinguished as the first large-scale map of Texas to show all of what would become the Republic of Texas, including the panhandle and territory up to the Arkansas River.

Martin and Martin note

The progress of settlement and the nearly total lack of information in the west, a region that was to remain primarily the domain of the Comanche and the coyote for another thirty years.

The map shows a combination of early counties and empresario grants, along with early roads, trails (Santa Fe), forts ("Ft. Houston," "Parker's Fort"), rivers, and mountains. A number of Indian tribes are shown, including Apachees Faraones, Apachees Mescateros, "Apachees Mescoleros.
