This large double page format map is one of the most detailed maps of early Texas, created just after the Civil War and during the period of large cattle drives from central and southern Texas to Kansas and beyond. It features large inset maps of the northern panhandle, Galveston and Matagorda Bays and Sabine Lake.

The map shows and expanding west Texas with towns, rivers, mountains, roads, railroads, stations, and forts identified. This map is rare.
