Title: A New Map of Mexico and Adjacent Provinces Compiled from Original Documents by A. Arrowsmith 1810
Place Published: London
Publisher:
Date Published: 1810
Description:
Engraved map, colored in outline. 3 (of 4) sheets only. Insets: Valley of Mexico from Mr. Humboldt's Map; Vera Cruz; Acapulco. Each sheet approx. 66.5x81 cm (26¼x31¾") dissected and mounted on linen backing for folding. If the map was complete and all four sheets were present, it would measure approx. 129x158 cm (50¾x62¼").


Three-fourths of Arrowsmith's large and very important map of Mexico, printed on four sheets, which extended in the east from the Mississippi Delta to the Pacific Ocean in the west; and north-south from 42° to 15°, thus including present Texas and the Southwest and California to above Mendocino. However, this example does not include the northwest quadrant, so the California portion is not present. 

Condition

Some fairly light offset and foxing, one minor tape repair at edge; very good.
