Book Description
TEXAS IN 1843 ARROWSMITH, John The London Atlas of Universal Geography, Exhibiting the Physical & Political Divisions of the Various Countries of the World. John Arrowsmith, 1842 [- 1846] Folio. 66 double page maps. Some splitting along the folds on a number of the maps [But not Texas], title tabs soiled and boards detached with the binding mostly perished. Although the engraved title is dated 1842, the maps are dated between 1842 and 1846. Only 50 of the maps are listed on the contents page, numbers 51 to 66 presumably added to the publication at a later stage. The Texas map, dated 8th June 1843, the second state is “probably the first to show the full extent of Texas's claim to the region of the upper Rio Grande, an area included within Texas's boundaries until the Compromise of 1850... [and] the best information on Texas geography available in Europe” (Martin & Martin, Maps of Texas and the Southwest, 32).
