   M-10388: The Independent Republic of Texas - 1842



M-10388: (Image: 14 ¼ x 11 3/8’’) “TEXAS.” Massachusetts: Thomas Gamaliel Bradford, c. 1842. Engraved  map with original hand-coloring. Engraved by G. W. Boynton (owner of an engraving company in Boston 1830’s - 40’s).

This important map depicts the Republic of Texas in 1842. It has been updated from the 1838 Bradford folio issue – and is considered the best issue, showing not only the grants, but also the early county structure of the Republic. The southern boundary of Texas is relocated south from the Nueces to the Rio Grande.  Colonization grants are prominently displayed and “Austin’s Colony” clearly noted – with the updated county structure apparent under the grants. Towns, settlements, creeks, rivers and Indian villages are identified.  The “Old Mexican Garrison” is located on the Brazos River, north of Deer Creek. 

“Aside from showing Texas as a separate state…[Bradford’s maps] are historically important for clearly demonstrating the demand in the United States for information about Texas during the Revolution and the early years of the Republic” (Martin & Martin, Maps of Texas and the Southwest, p.125).
