Catalogue Note

A small format version of Roessler's celebrated map of 1874, aimed at emigrants and focused on the geological riches of the Lone Star State. The Texas State Register in which Roessler's map was issued also includes a brief essay by the cartographer-geologist, "Some Account of the Mineral Wealth of Texas," which claims that "Texas is, or will be, the wealthiest State in the Union, possessing as she does great agricultural capabilities, all the varieties of soils minerals, and useful rocks known to exist in the world."
