David Edwards authored the book The History of Texas from which this map is taken. He traveled to Texas in 1830. This is one of the very earliest maps of Texas and was published shortly after it became a Republic, independent from Mexico. It shows Texas extending to the Nueces and a note expresses the hope that the boundry should be the Rio Grande River. Names grants include McMullen & McGlone, Woodbury, Cameron (2), Austin & Williams, Austin, DeWitt, Austin's Colony, De Leon, Burnet, Powers, Whelin, Zavallo, and Felisola.

This excellent map of Texas prominently shows the “Drove of Wild Horses” between the Nueces and Rio Grande.
