A Massive Republic of Texas Configuration
Detailed map of Texas (shown as a republic), "New California" (still part of Mexico, the Rocky Mountains and other contiguous regions.
The map includes extensive details in both upper California and Texas, including roads, forts, Indians, towns, rivers, and topographical details. The detail in Texas is exceptional, including missions and an extensive series of early roads, as well as topography and notes, including one referring to a "supposed petrified forest."
Several lengthy notes describe the terrain in upper California, pre-dating Fremont's expeditions. The vestiges of the mythical California lakes can be seen. Northern Utah has "Lake Youla Salt," with and "American Fur Depot" at the future site of the Great Salt Lake. North of this region is a massive "Columbia" territory.
The map includes an oversized stove-pipe Texas extending to nearly Cheyenne, in Wyoming.
This is an essential map for Southwestern collectors, being perhaps the most widely disseminated map of the southwest in Europe during the period.
