The Republic of Texas in 1844

Highly detailed map of the Republic of Texas, one of the few separately published maps of the Republic of Texas to appear in a commercial atlas.

Flemming's map of Texas is often called the German Arrowsmith map, from which it derives its cartography. Texas is shown in its maximum Republic configuration, with 30 counties identified in outline color. This map is certainly one of, if not the most detailed maps dedicated to the Republic of Texas to have appeared in an atlas.

The map is especially strong in identifying early roads, rivers, towns and forts often not shown on other contemporary maps of Texas. Inset of Galveston Bay. The panhandle is divided into 12 sections.

Day p. 37; Texas State Archives #1457. Not in Streeter.
