MEXICO / CALIFORNIA / TEXAS 1851
A fine reproduction map of MEXICO/CALIFORNIA /TEXAS
This map was drawn at the height of the California Gold Rush and responds to the international interest in the region by highlighting the goldfields in the Sacramento and San Joaquin valley.
The “Great Caravan Route” used by covered wagons during the westward expansion is also noted. It also offers several beautiful vignettes drawn by H. Warren and J. Rogers showing the Ruins at Uxmal, Yucatan, panning gold in California, and Mexican Peasantry.
Drawn by John Rapkin for issue in the 1851 edition of John Tallis’ Illustrated Atlas
