Description:
Copper-engraved map, hand-colored. 36x28.8 cm. (14¼x11¼"). Early map of Texas as an independent Republic, with the coloring reflecting the land grants. This is one of several later states, with the coloring pushing the southern border to the Rio Grande (i.e. Rio Bravo del Norte). Bradford was the first maker of atlases to include a separate map for Texas, in 1835. Martin & Martin 31: “Bradford published a completely new atlas in 1838, in a larger format, and the map of Texas it contained was even more clearly patterned on Austin’s.”
