About this Item

Folio (14 4/8 x 12 inches). Engraved title-page, Contents leaf, and 65 engraved maps, all with original hand-colour in full (some spotting to text leaves, one or two pale stains). Original half calf, brown cloth, red morocco lettering-piece on the front cover (worn and stained). First published in 1840, based on David H. Burr's "Universal Atlas" of 1836. This atlas contains the rare fine large-scale map of Texas "Texas Compiled from the Latest and Best Authorities". Greenleaf's map is an early map to show the individual counties, each colored. Two other maps in the atlas are of Texas interest: "North America", shows Texas as an independent republic; as does "The United States of Mexico". Streeter very famously did not include this atlas in his collection because: "Examples of atlas maps not separately published, and so not included, are Texas from the Latest Authorities, scale about seventy miles to the inch, found in the 1842 Greenleaf Atlas" (Streeter, Texas, volume III, page 330). Other maps of interest include the four hemispheres of the world, a "Map of the Country Twenty-Five Miles Round the City of New York", which is also circular; and "New Holland and New Zealand";.Day, Maps of Texas, p. 22. Phillips, America, p. 843; Atlases 784. Bookseller Inventory # 72lib688
