Description: Bradford, T[homas] G[amaliel]. TEXAS. Entered According to the Act of Congress, in the Year 1838, by T. G. Bradford… Engraved by G. W. Boynton. [Boston, ca. 1839]. Image size (neatline to neatline) 14 3/8" x 11 1/8"; Sheet size 19.25" x 16". Mild age-tone, several tears/chips to margins (most short, none more than 1", not approaching image.) Very Good. ********************************* Bradford was the first maker of atlases to include a seperate map for Texas. There are at least 6 versions of the Bradford map, and all of them are from Bradford's atlases. The present copy is an early issue: Showing only empresario grants and colonies (counties not included); the Nueces River is the southwestern border (later advanced to the Rio Grande.) However, the city of Austin is shown on this map, though it is not indicated as the capital. An important early map of Texas. [Day, Maps of Texas, p. 26; Martin & Martin 31]
