Additional Details

One of the first widely-circulated maps of early Texas statehood, being "among the first by a commercial cartographer to utilize the recent explorations that had bounded and determined the nature of the Great Basin. Because of its popularity, this map of the West exerted great influence, not only with the public but on other commercial cartographers" - Wheat, TMW 520.
