DEPÔT GÉNÉRAL DE LA MARINE
CARTE DES CÔTES DU GOLFE DU MEXIQUE

Shortly after its publication in 1799, Carta Esferica was widely disseminated and copied by other nations and mapmakers.  The magnificent sea chart below is the French version of that revolutionary Spanish map.  At the time of its publication, the map showed the Gulf of Mexico coastline with an accuracy never before seen.  Of special interest to students of Texas history, Carta Esferica was the first printed map to show and name Galveston Bay.

MAP OF NEW SPAIN

Alexander von Humboldt — adventurer, geographer, botanist, and climatologist — was undoubtedly the dominant scientific and philosophical figure of his age.  In 1799, Humboldt left his native Germany and embarked on a five-year exploration of the New World aimed at preparing a systematic scientific examination of the geography, flora and fauna of the counties in which he traveled.  After a lengthy investigation of the South American continent, Humboldt spent nearly a year in Mexico researching the libraries, viceroyalty records and state achieves of New Spain.

By the time Humboldt left Mexico in 1804, he had completed a thorough sketch for a comprehensive map.  The completed version was published in an atlas accompanying his Political History of the Kingdom of New Spain.  Although his rendering of Texas scarcely rates as an improvement over other maps of the era, Humboldt’s map has been termed a magnificent cartographic achievement for its depiction of Mexico and the American West.

Nearly ten years after the Battle of San Jacinto, Texas was admitted as the twenty-eighth state in the American Union.  This map by C. S. Williams represents one of the most accurate depictions of the Republic as it appeared on the eve of annexation.  Like others from its era, the map demonstrates the dearth of information available west of the 100th meridian, where details shown were largely conjectural.

SAMUEL A. MITCHELL
MAP OF MEXICO,
INCLUDING YUCATAN & UPPER CALIFORNIA

(PHILADELPHIA, 1848)

The outbreak of the U.S. — Mexican War created new demands for geographical information about Texas the western part of the continent.  The publishing career of Samuel Augustus Mitchell coincided with these demands and reflected public interest in the important political and military decisions determining the geographical divisions of the continent.

Mitchell’s extensive credits of cartographic productions during this period include this map, which illustrated the State’s territorial claims following signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo.  The map, like the treaty, reinforced the state’s controversial claim to eastern New Mexico and the upper Rio Grande.  Territorial disputes continued, however, until the state relinquished its claims to these regions as part of the Compromise of 1850 in exchange for a cash payment of $10 million.

JACOB DE CORDOVA
J. DE CORDOVA’S MAP OF THE STATE OF TEXAS…
(NEW YORK, 1849)

One of the first talents to benefit commercially from the storehouse of information in the General Land Office was an enthusiastic land agent and colonizer named Jacob de Cordova.  In the years following annexation, de Cordova employed Robert Creuzbar, an employee of the GLO to assist him in his promotional activities by compiling this new map of Texas.

De Cordova’s map, which drew praise by Sam Houston on the floor of the United States Senate, became an important document for immigration.  The map also illustrated the full extent of the state’s territorial claim under the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo by inclusion of the inset map, which defined the Texas boundary until the Compromise of 1850.  De Cordova’s map was the most important achievement in the state’s cartography prior to publication of Charles W. Pressler’s map in 1858.

COLTON’S NEW MAP OF THE STATE OF TEXAS

The westward expansion of the United States following the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo in 1848 and the discovery of gold in California in 1849 opened new markets and new demands in the cartographic centers of the east.  In New   York, the firm of J. H. Colton emerged as a leading supplier for those demands.  Colton’s 1866 map of Texas, based in large part on previous efforts by Jacob de Cordova, was the most accurate depiction of Texas at the close of the Civil War.
