Tanner’s 1828 map was the foundation of the “Treaty Series.” His 1846 update still didn’t correctly locate the Rio Grande or El Paso, but he did give Texas every bit of land claimed by the Republic, including Santa Fe. A key map of the American southwest by one of the two leading mapmakers in the nation, and a very fine example.
