United States.
W. & R. Chambers. Edinburgh. No date. Ca. 1845. - Engraved map, outline handcolor, 8 x 10 inches on sheet 9 1/2 x 12 inches; overall toning, some light soiling mostly in the lower and left margins, but with one smudge extending into lower left corner of map, otherwise good condition. RIPPLING IN IMAGE IS MOIRE PATTERN AND NOT RIPPLING IN PAPER. Bordering Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas is the 'Western Territory', with the huge expanse of Texas below, stretching from Louisiana with a stove pipe border that encompasses the towns of Santa Fe and Albuquerque to the Northwest. The map was published as Texas moved from its existence as the independent Republic of Texas to being annexed to the United States (1845). British mapmakers had difficulty keeping up with the latest changes across the Atlantic; the different typeface used for the word 'Texas', suggests that the map does reflect Texas as a Republic.
