This reproduction is from The National Atlas of the United States copyrighted in 1872 and published in 1876 by Warner & Beers. In this transitional period, the railroads had only reached as far west as Dallas & Austin. There are a number of projected but never built fantasy railroads shown as well as major Indian war trails, the military roads connecting the frontier forts and many now-forgotten place names. This is one of the few Texas maps that shows Wigefarth County in the lower Panhandle next to Indian Territory. This county was in existence for only a short time.

This beautiful hand-colored map is by Warner & Beers from H.H. Lloyd & Co.'s Atlas of the United States shows counties, principle cities, railroads, relief by hachures and rivers. Oklahoma was still "Indian Territory" and major tribal areas are shown. This beautiful reproduction is printed on heavy, acid-free stock and is excellent for framing.

What sets this map by Frank Gray apart from the others of this period are the seven inset maps that show: the rivers of Texas and their tributaries, a “Hypsometric Sketch of Texas” that depicts the topography, Galveston, Galveston Bay, Matagorda Bay, Austin, and the southern tip of Texas. This beautiful reproduction is printed on heavy, acid-free stock and is excellent for framing.

In the mid-nineteenth century westward settlement in Texas was stopped in its tracks by the Comanches, widely recognized at the time as the best mounted warriors in the world. The half-century struggle that ensued between the fledging state and America’s most fierce Indian tribe is depicted on this map. Battle sites, forts, trails and much more are shown on this graphically pleasing and historically rich map. This map is printed on heavy acid free stock that is excellent for framing

County Map of Texas by S. A. Mitchell 1881
The mapmaking firm of S. A. Mitchell published this county map of Texas in 1881. At this time, Texas was experiencing explosive growth in terms of immigration and railroad development. The map was published in one of Mitchell’s popular commercial atlases, and clearly shows the steady westward movement of the Texas populace by charting county development.
