This is an authentic, antique map showing the Republic of Mexico, portions of the United States and Indian Territories during the 1830s. The map was published in Atlas Geographe. Astronome. Et Hystorique by Johann Georg Heck out of Paris in 1834.
In this map, Mexico is shown divided into several provinces that include Texas and Upper California. Routes from Natchitoches and Austin to points south are depicted, as well as several trails leading from Jefferson and St. Charles, Missouri to Santa Fe. The 1819 Adams-Onis Treaty line acts as the border between Upper California and the Oregon Territory. Native American districts are also depicted in the northern portion of the map. Within the Great Basin the mythical Lake Teguayo is shown below Lake Timpanagos with several notations including "desert country, inhabited by few" and "country of many free Indian tribes."
This is overall, an unusual and scarce map showing the Republic of Mexico and continuous parts of the United States during a very interesting time of territorial expansion in North America.
Condition: This map is in A condition with some light foxing and original color.
