Description

Detailed map of Mexico and the Southwest, featuring Texas and Coahuila, on the eve of Texas Independence.

The Austins Colony appears prominently in Texas, along with Austin's Grant, Washington, Houston, Goliad and a number of other early settlements.

The map also provides a fascinating pre-Fremont System of Rivers in Upper California, culminating in Lake Timpanogos and the mythical southern Salt Lake. No sign of the Sierras. Many Indian tribes located throughout the West. The Russian Establishment north of San Francisco is noted, along with the California Missions.

A marvelous early map of the region. From the first edition of Tanner's Universal Atlas.
