A Texas Rarity
One of the rarest English language maps of State of Texas to appear in a commercial Atlas.
Rogers & Johnstons' map of Texas appeared in the extremely rare Atlas of the United States. The map was derived from the monumental and equally rare wall map, an historic collaboration between Professor Rogers, an American, and the Johnston publishing house in Britain.
The map is colored by counties and shows a number of interesting details, especially in the west, including early forts, ponds, emigrant's crossings, and other details. Only one example of this map has appeared in a dealer catalogue in the past 30 years (Ricard Fitch, 1984).
A fine example of this rare early map of the State of Texas.
