    Willard Richardson: New Map of the State of Texas, 1873 (New York: G. W. and C. B. Colton Company, 1873), 26.75" x 19.5". In 1837, Willard Richardson (1802-1875) settled in Texas, where he worked as a teacher, newspaperman, and publisher of a series of Texas almanacs. This hand-colored map, prepared for the 1873 almanac, includes five insets: "Plan of the Northern Part or Panhandle of Texas," "Plan of the Great West," "Plan of Matagorda Bay," "Plan of Sabine Lake," and "Plan of Galveston Bay." The map was originally folded into a small (6" x 4"), leather-bound pocket folder with gold lettering (dated 1872), which is also included. In very good condition with tiny pieces missing along some folds, corner creases, minor spotting, and chipping on the edges. Ex. Dallas Historical Society.
