The scientific and topographical illustrations by the artists

who accompanied various official U.S. government surveys

that probed the Southwest are among the best glimpses of

nineteenth-century Texas, New Mexico, and the surrounding

regions. This volume contains major iconography of the

Southwest and Borderlands by one of the brightest and most

outstanding expeditionary artists who served with the early

U.S. surveys of the Southwest. Abert (1820-1871) was one of

the more competent commanders and artists, serving as both

on his expeditions. Leading a dangerous exploration into

Mexican territory after being detached by Frémont for the

mission, Abert guided his troops successfully to the source of

the Canadian River at Raton Pass, New Mexico, successfully

crossed the Texas Panhandle, and brought his troops safely

back. While so doing, he depicted many of the areas through

which he travelled, thereby leaving to posterity many early

images of these area and their inhabitants, as published in the

two illustrated reports.
