This is a high quality reproduction, very colorful map of Texas in 1856. The map has a very attractive border and is printed on high quality gloss paper. It measures 24" x 18" and is suitable for framing!

The map has "age spots," giving it an “antique” look .  This is a detailed map of Texas, colored by counties and showing the primitive county configurations in the west.

It illustrates many early roads, trails, railroads, towns, forts, and other important places. The map shows “Wild Horses and Cattle” in South Texas. It also states states "Note. From the head waters of the Red Brazos and Colorado Rivers to the Rio Pecos is a desolate and sterile plain from 100 to 200 miles in width elevated about 4,500 feet above the Gulf of Mexico without water or timber and with scanty vegetation."

Large Presido and Bexar Counties states "LEPANS AND OUTHER COMANCHES". This map shows the Port of Indianola which was wiped out by hurricanes starting in 1875.

The map reflects "German Settlements" around Fredericksburg and it shows present day Oklahoma as “Indian Territory”.

The state of New Mexico has all towns and rivers denoted. The map has insets of Galveston Bay and Sabine Lake.
