Description

Made to accompany his Political Essay on the Kingdom of New Spain, Humboldt’s “General Map of the Kingdom of New Spain” was composed from archives in Mexico City and Washington, DC. His map details the coastal areas of Texas and marked the interior as unknown country (pays inconnus). Humboldt also extends Texas’s borders beyond the Sabine River, though he recognized that these limits had not been approved by the United States’ Congress.
