Map handsomely framed with UVIII Plexiglass. Lightly soiled, trimmed close to neatline at right margin, some marginal restoration. A Visit to Texas with four engraved plates; foxed and with occasional marginal restoration; recased in publisher's green cloth gilt, rubbed and repaired. Brown cloth folding-case.
This map was issued in the anonymous Visit to Texas: Being the Journal of a Traveller through those Parts Most interesting to American Settlers (New York: Goodrich and Wiley, 1834), a copy of which accompanies the map. The text—which, according to Howes has variously been attributed to a Col. Morris and to a Dr. M. Fiske—is a fresh and intriguing account of contemporary Texas, with "fine descriptions of natural scenery, prairies, some natural history, and … political conditions" (Clark). ''This anonymous work is one of the most important accounts of Texas during a critical period in its history'' (Jenkins).
