    Lts. J.W. Abert and W.G. Peck. Map of the Territory of New Mexico Made by Order of Brig. Gen. S.W. Kearny, under instructions from Lieut. W.H. Emory, U.S.T.E. 1846-7. 23" x 27.5. Abert and Peck were originally part of Emory's team headed to the Pacific during the Mexican War, but were left behind due to illness. The map offered here results from their efforts to complete earlier surveys begun during Fremont's third expedition. An important map with great detail of the Rio Grande Valley and adjacent areas centered on Santa Fe.

    At top left: "The road from the direction of Bent's Fort to Santa Fe and from Santa Fe to Taos and the astronomical positions given on the map are from the unpublished map of Lieut. Emory - except the Latitude of Taos by Lieut. Warner, U.S.T.E." The map also marks Indian territories.

    Condition: Usual folds, light toning and soiling. Very fine condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
