The First Map of New Mexico Territory

Fine early map of the Territory of New Mexico, shortly after the conclusion of the Mexican War.

Detailed mapping along the course of the Rio del Norte [i.e., Rio Grande] and adjacent areas, including Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos, the road to Bent's Fort, Ruins of Pecos; The Gold Mountains near Tuerto etc.

The map appeared in Emory's " Notes of a Military Reconnoissance...," 1848, so identified by the absence of lithographer's imprint; the same map, with imprint of C.B. Graham and a few additional textual notices, and slightly different dimensions, was published in 1847 in "Report of the Secretary of War communicating...a report and map of the examination of New Mexico, made by Lieutenant J.W. Abert, of the Topographical corps" (Senate Ex. Doc. No. 23, 30th Congress, 1st Session).

The map show Santa Fe, Taos, Ruins of Pecos; The Gold Mountains near Tuerto, etc.
