In 1876 when this superb folio map of Texas was published by the S.A. Mitchell Co., the frontier was still in flux and the western counties including those on the barren and little known Llano Estacado had not yet been formed from the early territories. This reproduction brings out many normally hard to see features. In this transitional period, the railroads had only reached as far west as Fort Worth & San Antonio. Shown are the major Indian war trails, the military roads still connecting all the frontier forts and many now-forgotten place names. In addition, a very large part of Indian Territory and New Mexico is shown in full color and detail. The map features the trademark grapevine border coupled with effective but subtle hand wash coloring and is printed on heavy parchment style paper that is excellent for framing.
