(United States) Estados Unidos

    Spanish published maps are not easy to come by, and over the years, we've only had a handful of maps by the Spanish mapmaker, Alabern. This early 1850's map of the United States is an interesting mix of territories, where "Tejas" is still vaguely heart shaped and bordered by a large New Mexico. Throughout the western plains native districts are shown, spanning up to the Canadian border. Oddly California is shown as a much smaller territory of "Nueva California" which is mostly coastal and much smaller than its present boundaries, here not reaching inland to even include Tulare Lake.

    Condition is very good with strong original hand color. Image size is approximately 8.5 x 11.5 (inches)
