    J.H. Young. Map of the State of Texas From the Latest Authorities. Philadelphia: Charles Desilver. [1856]. Full sheet measures 17.25" x 14". The established counties extend to Cooke in the north and the western part of the state remains largely defined as tribal and rolling table lands marked with a line of army forts separating it from the settled region. Tiny flags locate important battlefields in both the Texas Revolution and the Mexican-American War. A table lists the population of the state according to the Census of 1850; listing the population by race, further differentiating between free and enslaved "colored". There are insets of Northern Texas, showing the northern boundary as resolved in the Compromise of 1850, in the upper left corner. A second inset showing the vicinity of Galveston City is at lower left.

    Condition: Original color remains bright, with binding holes in the top margin. Slight darkening at edges, with a few stray spots of foxing.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
