A superb map of depicting Mexico prior to the succession of Texas and the loss of their northern territories to the United States after the Mexica-American war.

The map presents to us the country of Mexico from the Bay of Honduras, south of the Yucatan to the northern reaches of New Mexico where Santa Fe is connected to the rest of the country by the Rio del Norte (Rio Grande) and flanked on either side by the Comanche, Apache, and Navajo. The Mexicans had frequent and long standing conflicts with these tribes that resulted in massacres, kidnappings, and slavery committed by both sides. It was around the time this map was published that Mexico invited Americans to settle in Texas and act as a buffer to the frequent Comanche raids they had endured for centuries. These settles would later declare their independence from Mexico in 1836.

Surrounding the map is a wealth of descriptive and statistical information that is quite unique to the Carey and Lea maps of the early 19th century. Sections of text go into great detail in describing the climate, geography, harvest production, geo-political divisions, and population of Mexico.

Condition: This map is in B+ condition with some minor edge tears along the lower margins and one along the centerfold that extends about 1 1/2 inches into the map that has been reinforced on the verso using archival materials.
