"Texas," Francis McNally, published by A.S. Barnes & Burr, New York, 1861.(Image: 10 1/2" wide x 8 3/8" high). Copper plate engraved relief line engraving with original hand colors of yellow and pink. The cities are shown on this map but counties are not named, only numbered, generally from north to south. This map was published during the first year of the Civil War. Civil War forts are named and shown in the western part of the state. The areas dominated by the Comanches (spelled Camanches) Lipans, and Kiowa are shown by range lines. The inset of the pan handle is designated as "North Texas," and names it as part of the American Desert. The Big Bend is designated as "High Arid Table Land" and the Valley as "Great Prairie." There is an inset of Galveston Bay with Chambers County, Galveston County and Brazoria County. Please note the small stain in the left margin. Other than this minor defect the map is in excellent condition.
