by Mitchell, S. Augustus
Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, 1847. Folding pocket map, measuring 18 x 25 3/4 inches, folded to 5 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches. Hand-colored map, folded into original leather covers. Slight loss in three places along center fold, some separation at fold. Cover worn, spine chipped. Light toning and scattered foxing to map. Color bright and strong. Good. In a half morocco box. Map of Mexico, from Upper California to the Yucatan and across the whole of Texas. Published in 1847, during the Mexican-American War, this map has an inset of "The Late Battlefield" at Monterrey, which occurred in September 1846. The inset map includes a key indicating troop positions, etc. Other battles across Texas and Mexico are indicated with a small flag, including one which marks the Alamo. The Treaty of Guadeloupe Hidalgo, signed in 1848, ended the war and ceded significant portions of Mexican territory to the United States. This map therefore shows the final iteration of Mexican territory before the cession of California, Texas, and the Southwest. WHEAT, TRANSMISSISSIPPI 548.
