Description

Property from a Distinguished Private Collection

[YOUNG, JAMES HAMILTON]

Map of Texas from the Most Recent Authorities. Philadelphia: Published by C. S. Williams, 1845 


Engraved pocket map (12 1/4 x 15 in.; 311 x 382 mm), full contemporary handcoloring, inset map of “Map of Texas North of Red River.” Accompanied by the original embossed maroon roan binding, front cover gilt-lettered “Texas"; two very short marginal fold separations, a few small spots of foxing. Handsomely framed and glazed with UVIII Plexiglass. 


A rare pocket-map issue of an outstanding map published the year of annexation. The present copy, which was acquired at a Dorothy Sloan Rare Books auction, 14 February 2007, seems to be the only separately issued pocket version cited in the auction records. The map is most frequently encountered in its appearances in world atlases published by both Samuel Augustus Mitchell and Henry S. Tanner. Streeter had a copy of Tanner's atlas version preserved as a pocket map.
