Spanish North America : J. Thomson

This example, dated 1814, was published in Thomson's "New General Atlas". At the time of publication this was one of the largest format maps devoted to this area of present-day California, New Mexico, Texas and the surrounding states - an undesignated region soon to be the site of conflict between the developing United States and Mexico, under Spanish rule. Detail extends north to include Santa Fe, and the name "Texas" appears as identifying a town rather than a region. However, this is one of the earliest appearances of this form of the name on a map - previously reference had been to "Telas" or "Tejas". Printed from an engraved copperplate and in original full colour, with minor repair to lower centrefold
