Description:

An engraved outline color map of California and the Southwest including Texas, published just before the Gadsden Purchase changed the boundary between Mexico and the United States. Texas is missing it's panhandle making New Mexico quite large. Utah is also very large and there is no boundary between it and California. Arizona is possibly named "Apacheria", no doubt after the Apache tribe. The important California gold region is very colorfully shown in a gold tint. This is a very detailed and interesting old map.
