A New Chart of the World on Mercator’s Projection with the Tracks of the Most Celebrated & Recent Navigators.
London: Henry Teesdale & Co. 10 Red Lion Square 1841 - Very large folding chart of the world in two parts, each measuring 126 x 95 cm (i.e. 126 x 190 cm if joined), each part dissected into 16 sections and mounted on linen, all edges trimmed with green cloth, marbled paper to folded end sections on linen verso, the chart with full original colour. Folds between the publisher’s full burgundy morocco covers, borders richly gilt, upper cover gilt lettered direct. Light rubbing to the extremities of the covers and a few light speckles to the upper board, slight wear to the trim at a few points, a very good example of a most striking chart. The chart notably shows Texas as an independent state. The republic existed for 10 years between 1836 and 1846, after which time the U.S. government invaded the territory as part of its ongoing campaign against Mexico. The courses of a number of famous navigators are indicated, with various panels of descriptive text and tables also printed across the chart.
