Antique maps engraved by J. & C. Walker, published under the superintendance of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (London: Chapman and Hall, 1844) Originally printed on two separate large overlapping sheets which have been joined to form a single map, as intended by the publishers. Both maps note towns, rivers, mountains, deserts, islands, and various other important topographical details. The borders on the map have been drawn to show Texas as being part of Mexico, reflecting the era of Texan history between 1821 and 1836, when it was part of Mexico. Includes lists of animals on the globe, highest mountains, surface of the globe, population and religions.
