Large, copperplate engraved with original hand coloring in pink and pale blue. State lines outlined in red. Absolutely stunning and very, very  rarely seen. Cram, was a noted Civil War veteran, writer and illustrator, who began publishing in 1867. This may have been his finest map of Texas. The scale is listed as 36 miles to one inch. Railroad lines are shown. Oklahoma is divided into Public Lands above the Texas Pan Handle and the Indian Territory. Most of West Texas, north of Tom Green County, is shown. The Indian Territory is divided into: Cheyennes and Arrapahoes; Creek; Kiowa, Comanches and Apaches (what a rough place!); Chickasaw; Choctaw Nation; Creek Country; Pottawatomies; Sac and Fox; Seminoles; Cherokees; Osages, Pawnees; and Wichitas.
