1st item: Jeremiah Greenleaf, "Texas Compiled from the Latest and Best Authorities," from a rare 1848 reissue of Greenleafs 1842 Universal Atlas. Greenleaf's 1842 map of Texas was based upon Burrs map of 1833 (which was the first to show the territorial claims that would eventually become the Republic). Texas is now part of the United States with the only update being the southern border now shown along the Rio Grande (the earlier edition conservatively had the border along the Nueces River) and the addition of San Patricio county. Portions of Indian Territory, Arkansas and Louisiana are also shown. Sheet – 11 5/8" H x 14 3/8" W. Note pencil inscription to side (Greenleaf 1849) appears to be erroneous. Includes a 19" x 20" stained wood frame and old framing materials. 2nd item: Gold Rush Era map of Mexico, California, and Texas, published by John Tallis and Company, London and New York. Steel-engraved map, drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin, hand-colored in outline, with decorative border and the "newly discovered Gold districts" colored in yellow, with colored vignettes (by H. Warren, engraved by J. Rogers) of miners "gold washing" plus vignettes of Mexican peasantry and Ruins at Uxmal, Yucatan. Texas is shown as an independent country, extending to the Rio Grande in the west, encompassing Santa Fe. Includes a 18" x 14" wood frame. Provenance: the estate of Capt. L. Bush Cole, Nashville, Tennessee (formerly of Texas). CONDITION: 1st item: Overall browning due to old acidic background; some areas of browning/staining (possibly from water) to right side, scattered areas of white substance/residue, edge creasing and chipping. Pencil inscriptions to left and right margin. 2nd item: Map is adhered to cardboard backing.
