An interesting and scarce map - the first edition of a map more often noted as showing a very early depiction of the independent State of Texas. In this issue Texas is only identified as a general, unbordered region within the 'Intendency of St. Louis', with detail to Santa Fe along the Rio Brava. Good detail is shown of Mexico and Guatimala south to Costa Rica. Attractive original wash colour.
