À propos de l'objet

Map of Texas with Parts of Adjoining States Compiled by Stephen F. Austin. Stephen F. Austin (1793-1836). Engraved Map with original hand color. Philadelphia, 1830. First Edition. 28 3/4 x 23 inches sheet, 46 1/2 x 36 1/2 inches framed. This is the First Edition of Stephen Austin's landmark map of Texas. In an effort to confirm his father's colonila land grant, Ustin realized the need for the precise cartographic documentation of Texas. Promising the Mexican government that he would carry out his task if the grant was approved, his goal was realized in 1830 with the publication of this map. As a shrewd land promoter, Austin hoped that the map's circulation would help bring the state into public view, assuring colonial success and the defeat of the Mexican restrictions on immigration. The most popular and authoritative Texasmap of its day, it was the first to show, in large scale, the results of the U.S. emigration into Texas. It greatly surpassed previous printed maps in detail and accuracy, showing numerous towns and settlements for the first time, including San Felipe de Austin, Harrisburg, Brazoria, Matagorda, Waco Village, Victoria and Gonsalez. Austin also made significant improvements in the rendering of the coastline and in the detail of the northwest territory. Despite being the first map of Texas to achieve wide circulation and credibility, existing copies are extremely rare and valuable. As both a symbol of U.S. domination and an invaluable tool for soldiers and settlers, the 1830 Austin-Tanner map is a pivotal document of this decisive period in American, Mexican and Texan history.
