setting, a few minor voids and short repaired splits at folds (minimal losses),

original full color in Mexico and the Southwest; Texas outlined in bright yellow with the
outrageously long Panhandle extending almost to South Pass; Iowa,
Arkansas, and Louisiana with outline coloring; traced in bright red are Wool’s route
(main map) and major roads in the interior of
Mexico (on inset). 74.5 x 104 cm (29
inches). Light browning along center, where the two sections of the map were
originally co-joined, otherwise exceptionally

ful coloring, the red pocket covers bright. A superb example of one of the outstanding
maps for United States, Texas, and Mexican history. Rare in any edition or condition,
but especially in its desirable
