Item Details
Description
"Bradford's Map of Texas, 1st Separate Map of Texas to Appear in an Atlas"

by Thomas G. Bradford, copper engraving with hand-colored outlines, published Boston, 1835/1836, together with accompanying atlas text.
Matted, glazed and framed.


pl. 8-3/4" x 12", framed 24-1/2" x 27-1/4"

Provenance: Arader Galleries, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Notes: This map, published in Bradford’s Comprehensive Atlas, was the first plan of Texas to be cartographically acknowledged as in independent Republic in an American Atlas with its own separate map. Based on the “Father of Texas”, Stephen F. Austin’s watershed map, it shows the Austin Colony, divides the territory into fourteen important land grants instead of counties, and delineates the southwestern boundary with the “Mustang or Wild Horse Desert”. The map marked 64.A. is accompanied with the text marked 64.B. that highlights the topography, features and boundaries of the territory.
