The map Carte Generale des Etats-Unis Mexicains et des Provinces-Unies de l'Amerique Centrale shows Mexico in possession of California, the Southwest, and Texas, which is named, but not yet delineated. The topography is represented in hachure and is based on the expeditions of Lewis and Clark, Pike and Long. All river systems of the area and their tributaries are depicted. An inset in the lower left quadrant is entitled Guatemala ou Provinces-Unis de l'Amerique Centrale, and covers Central America and the Yucatan peninsula.

Adrien-Hubert Brue (1786 - 1832) was a French cartographer active in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He held the office of Geographe du Roi and often signed his maps as such. In this position Brue contributed to thousands of maps and numerous atlases. His maps are known for their beauty, their clarity and accuracy. Like most cartographers many of his maps were published posthumously. Many of his maps were published posthumously by his partner, Charles Picquet's son and heir, Pierre-Jacques Picquet, and were still being updated and republished decades after his death.

Brue’s work is always distinguished by the high quality paper which he used and a remarkably high standard of engraving. This grand copper-engraved map by Brue is printed on heavy paper with wide margins, royal seal, script title and elegant keyboard border.

Condition: This map is in superb A condition. Lovely, original outline coloring with a color-coded key embellishes the map.
