This series of finely engraved and decorative maps were first published in parts from the end of the 1840's and issued as a complete work, The Illustrated Atlas, and Modern History of the World... in 1851. The work was published several times until about 1865, the maps were then used by Montgomery Martin, the author of the text for The Illustrated Atlas, in his British Colonies from 1854. The maps were later used with vignettes erased from the plate, in geographical dictionaries and encyclopaedia until about 1880.
The map depicts a transitional period in the unsettled political configuration of Texas, New Mexico and California. Includes key to The Newly discovered Gold districts and vignette of Gold washing erased from later editions.
Vignettes of Gold Washing, Mexican Peasantry and Ruins at Uxmal, Yukatan.
A very good example from the first edition without centrefold in original outline hand colour. With accompanying page of typeset text description.
