Title : Map of the Territory of New Mexico Compiled by Bvt. 2nd. Lt. Jno. G. Parke, U.S.T.E. assisted by Mr. Richard H. Kern by Order of Bvt. Col. Jno. Munroe. U.S.A. Comdg. 9th Mil. Dept.. . ..
Map maker : PARKE, John G. and Richard H. Kern..
Date : New York, 1851.
Size : 24.4 x 33.4 inches. / 62.0 x 84.8 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :First edition of this separately issued map, at a time when the Mexican-American War had recently converted vast regions of the Southwest to U.S. control, with many boundary issues still unresolved.
"This map was a favorite of Carl Wheat...and also a favorite of Henry Wagner, from whom my copy came in 1938." - Phillips, America, p. 494. Streeter Sale 431.

"Parke’s map gave the most comprehensive view of New Mexico that had been yet developed.... Parke’s published map is a remarkable production, both because it is a composite of the maps hitherto described, and because of the wealth of additional information contained on it.
It would be of little assistance to attempt to describe this latter aspect of this map; it must be gained from a view of the map itself.... North of the route proposed by Simpson at such length the canyons of the Colorado are not shown, but the Moqui (Hopi) country, the Cerro Abajo and the Cerro la Sal, and the Green and the Grand rivers appear....
In the far northwest, in Utah Territory below the Wasatch range, and stretching east from Vegas (Las Vegas, Nevada), is “The Spanish Trail leading from the Pueblo de los Angeles California to Abiquiu New Mexico”....
The names along the upper Grand River, and in the valley at the head of the Rio Grande del Norte, are remarkable in that they here appear so early, and though this whole country on the north and west is labeled “Unexplored,” this map must have been an eye-opener to Beale and Frémont, who passed through the Green and Grand area on their separate ways to California in 1853" - Wheat, "Mapping the Transmississippi West #730, Vol. III, pp. 19-22".
