Rare 18th-century Texas map.
This rare Texas map depicts the region from somewhat east of the Mississippi to Lower California in the 1750's, most of which was claimed and loosely governed by Spain. The map was included in Leonhard Euler's "Geographisher Atlas", and is one part of a four part map of America. It includes an inset map of northeastern Canada. The map is in German and English. Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) was an Enlightenment polymath, best known for his work in mathematics and physics.
