Description

Annotated copy of this fine early map of the Territory of New Mexico, published shortly after the conclusion of the Mexican War by the War Department and later republished with the annotations added by James S. Calhoun, the first territorial Governor of New Mexico.

The annotated map appeared in The OFFICIAL CORRESPONDENCE Of JAMES S. CALHOUN While Indian Agent at Santa Fe and Superintendent of Indian Affairs in New Mexico, published in 1915.

The underlying Kearney map includes a 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.

Kearney's map appeared in Emory's "Notes of a Military Reconnaissance...," 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.
