    A. Wislizenus. Map of a Tour from Independence to Santa Fé, Chihuahua, Monterey, and Matamoras by A. Wislizenus, in 1846 and 1847. 17.75" x 23". The map depicts the roads, settlements, ranches and roads taken by Dr. Wislizenus (1810-1889), as part of the Doniphan's Expedition. The group set out from Independence, Missouri, along the Santa Fe Trail with Albert Speyer, merchant and rumored gunrunner, unaware that war had been declared between Mexico and the United States. The group was captured and imprisoned for several months. After being released, he joined Colonel Alexander Doniphan and his 1st Regiment of Missouri Mounted Volunteers as a surgeon on their return to the United States. This map was originally issued in Wislizenus' Memoir, published in 1848.

    Condition: Usual folds, light toning along upper edge. A few minor, clear tears along fold edges. Very fine.
