Excellent pre-Smith cartography in Upper or New California, including the 3 rivers feeding the two Great Salt Lakes in Utah. Nice post Humboldt-Pike-Long cartography through the Rocky Mountains and the Plains. Excellent detail in Texas, which is named, without sign of the Austin, who was just then establishing first contacts with the region after obtaining a grant from Mexico in January 1823.

Adrien-Hubert Brué Biography

Andre Hubert Brué was a French geographer and cartographer. Born in Paris, he served in the French Navy, joining the Baudin expedition to the Pacific (1800-1804). After his sea service, Brué applied his navigation and charting skills to creating finely-crafted maps, which were renowned for their crisp engraving and accuracy. He drew directly on the copper of the plate, creating what he called encyprotypes. He is best known for the Atlas universal de géographie physique, politique, ancienne et moderne.
