DE CORDOVA, JACOB. 1808-1868.
J. De Cordova's Map of the State of Texas Compiled from the records of the General Land Office of the State by Robert Creuzbau. New York, 1866.
Hand-colored lithographed map of the state of Texas, printed on thin paper. 910 x 820 mm. Decorative border, with an inset map of the western U.S. Old fold lines (previously a folding map), some lightly browned, and with a few small holes along some folds. A rare and fine example of this large Cordova map of Texas, first published in 1849, and the first detailed map of the State of Texas using information gathered by Robert Creuzbaur from official sources, here in its 5th Colton state. De Cordova published the map in Houston about five times between 1849 and 1854, and in 1855 Colton bought the map from Cordova, and republished in New York on another five occasions. This issue is the first to be released after the Civil War and incorporates additional information in the western parts of Texas, as people poured out of the Southern States into Texas to establish new roots and new businesses. Wheat 609(1849 edition); Ristow p.459; Taliaferro 295.

Saleroom notices

  • The map has a contemporary ink inscription in the margin under the mount "Texas Land Office, Map of Texas", and was presumably in use in Texas, soon after its printing in New York.
