AMERICAS Gnomonic Projection. Texas, Western US is Mexican SDUK 1844 old map

Price: £124.99

TITLE OF MAP (NOT PRINTED ON THE PAGE):'WORLD ON GNOMONIC PROJECTION, II., America'

The national borders on the map have been drawn to show Texas as being part of Mexico, suggesting either that the map was originally engraved prior to the Texas revolution which ended in the Texan declaration of Independence from Mexico 1836, or (more likely) that the map was originally engraved during the period of the Texas Republic 1836-1845 and the mapmaker took the perspective of Mexico which had refused to recognise the independence of Texas. No date is printed on the map itself. The United States - Mexican border shown on the map follows that agreed under the 1819 AdamsOnis Treaty, being the Sabine River north from the Gulf of Mexico to the 32nd parallel north, then due north to the Red River, west along the Red River to the 100th meridian west, due north to the Arkansas River, west to its source, north to the 42nd parallel north, and finally west along that parallel to the Pacific Ocean.
