    , Anton R. Roessler. A. R. Roessler's Latest Map of the State of Texas...New York: Edw. Welcke, 1874. 96.2 x 106.2 cm. Colored. Folded into original green cloth with title in gilt on front cover. Minor splitting. A fine copy. First edition. Taliaferro Cartographic Sources in the Rosenburg Library 349: "Rosessler's maps are the only printed maps that preserve the results of the Shumard survey, the state's first geological and agricultural survey." This large, splendid production contains illustrations of the Old State Capital Building and the General Land Office. There is an inset map entitled: Map Showing Agricultural and Varieties of Soils in the State of Texas 28.5 x 28.8 cm. This depicts the disputed Greer County as part of Texas. Roessler was one of those controversial self-promoters who seem to flourish in Texas. Roessler was a trained geologist and worked on the Texas Geological Survey in the 1860s and was involved with the Texas land and Immigration Co., of New York in the 1870s. He was accused of many misdeeds but his maps are the best contemporary records of agricultural and mineral wealth. A good portion of New Mexico is depicted. A remarkably fine map showing counties, county seats, towns, roads, streams, rivers, mountains, location of Indian tribes in Indian Territory, public lands, remarks on topography, notes on treaty cessions, etc. Plus six insets. Scale an inch to 20 miles. Courtesy of Michael Heaston, Austin. Consigned Lot
