WESTERN HEMISPHERE Pre Mexican-American War. Pacific USA Canada. SDUK, 1845 map

Price: £41.99

TITLE/CONTENT OF MAP: 'WESTERN HEMISPHERE'

The borders on the map have been drawn to show Texas as being part of Mexico, reflecting the situation prior to the Texas revolution which ended in the Texan declaration of Independence from Mexico 1836, although given that the map was published in 1845 the cartographer appears to have reflected the position of Mexico which had refused to recognise the independence of the Texas Republic. The United States - Mexican border printed 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. From the point where the Columbia River meets the 49th parallel, the border between the United States and British North America (now Canada) is printed on the map as following the course of the Course of the Columbia River to the south and west until it reaches the Pacific Ocean. Therefore that part of what is now the US state of Washington to the west of the Columbia River (which includes present-day Seattle-Tacoma) is shown on the map as being part of British North America. The map predates the Oregon Treaty of 1846 which moved this border to the north, setting the US border with British North America border at the 49th parallel with the exception of Vancouver Island, which was retained in its entirety by the British.
