This is a High Quality Reproduction of the California, Mexico and Texas Map in 1851.  Printed on high quality gloss paper, this print is suitable for framing.  It measures 19 1/2" wide x 14 1/2" tall and the Paper Size is 24" x 18".

It's a very decorative and interesting map of the American southwest, showing Mexico, Texas and a large part of the California territory.

Throughout the area, towns, rivers, mountains, and political borders are delineated. The only road indicated is the “Great Caravan Route” running from Santa Fe to “Pueblo de los Angeles,” that is, the Santa Fe Trail.

Though issued shortly after the Compromise of 1850, Texas is shown with its larger borders extending to the Rio Grande, and thus including Santa Fe and other lands north and east. The map includes the land to the west of this enlarged Texas, shown as “New or Upper California.”

Of particular interest is the depiction, using a keyed yellow wash, of the “newly discovered GOLD districts” in California, just two years after the gold rush of ‘49’. San Francisco is indicated, as is Sutter’s Mill, still called “Nueva Helvetia.”

The gold theme appears in one of the three vignettes in which four men pan for gold. A final flourish is the decorative border showing plants from the southwest, including cactus, squash, and melons. This description is included with the map.
