Significant map of Mexico and most of the United States, up the California coast as far as Cape San Sebastian (above Mendocino), and across to New York, with fairly good detail in New Mexico but the surrounding plains and basins are rather sparsely depicted. There is engraved text on the map describing some of the geographical features and settlements. Wheat, Transmississippi, 297, listing it under Humboldt.

Martin & Martin, 23 & pp. 19, 32: "A noteworthy turning point in the cartographic history of Texas occurred in 1810, when the great European savant, Alexander von Humboldt, had been a guest of the Spanish government in Mexico. . . His semi-official status provided him access to many confidential sources, and among the works his stay produced was a large map of New Spain. Although he left Mexico in 1804, the map was not published until 1810, when it appeared with his Political Essay on the Kingdom of New Spain. . . Humboldt was, without question, the dominant scientific and philosophical figure of his age Humboldt's Essai Politique. . . was one of the first to establish the field of geography as a modern science. . . Humboldt's map [of New Spain] has been termed a magnificent cartographic achievement, which in its depiction of the West it surely is." ¤
