Description

Fine example of Alexandre Emile Lapie's map of the Republic of Texas, New Mexico, Upper California and Mexico.

One of the best large format maps of Mexico, Texas and Upper California to appear in a commercial atlas in the 1830s.

Texas is clearly delineated in its early Republic format, with dozens of place names shown, a well as the road from Natchitoches to the Loredo area.

Substantial detail throughout the Rocky Mountains, incorporating Humboldt, Pike and Long.

The west reflects the cartography which predates Fremont's explorations, including two Salt Lakes and the mythical rivers which connect them to the Pacific, including the R. Buenaventura and the R. Millers, which has its terminus in San Francisco Bay.

Lots of Indian Tribes and place names throughout.
