Impero del Messico

Uncommon elegant Italian map of Mexico by Filippo Naymiller showing in nice detail California, Texas, etc. published in Milan in 1860 at Francesco Pagnoni. The map shows the boundaries of the Western US immediately after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo signed in 1848. The shape of “Nuova California” (New California) is really interesting including a prominent “Lago Timpanogos” and “Lago Teguayo” and a curious range of mountains called Monte S. Giuseppe, which create the source of two great rivers called “Gesu Maria” and “Wimmelco” flowing into San Francisco Bay. The early Upper California Missions are noted. Texas is shown in its Republic configuration. Early Indian Tribes named.
Includes a second sheet of text embellished by vignettes engraved by Balbi showing Mexico City and Veracruz providing really interesting geographical and statistical information. The map was finely engraved by Pietro Allodi.
