Colton's "New Medium" Map of the State of Texas From the latest & Most Authentic Sources.
A rare folding map by Colton, on bank note stock showing the quickly changing Texas. A bit larger than the standard atlas map that they issued, it includes the insets of "Plan of Matagorda Bay", "Plan of Sabine Lake" and the "Plan of Galveston Bay", as well as the "Northern Part of 'Panhandle' of Texas". Details the towns and railroads progress, and shows counties divided west of the 23rd meridian with those in the north mostly without a single town, while west Texas is mostly divided by the large counties of "Tom Gree", "Crockett", "Pecos", "El Paso" and "Presidio".
In our research we see a handful of instances of this map surfacing, but none from this year. Unfortunately did not come with its covers.
Condition is very good with some minor soiling, and a spot or two of foxing, but much is exaggerated by our photos. Image size is approximately 19 x 25.5 (inches)
