Description:

Richardson, W & Charles Desilver (publishers & Heinrich Wicklenad (surveyor/engineer). Richardson's New Map of the State of Texas Including part of Mexico Compiled from Government Surveys and Other Authentic Documents Published by Charles Desilver, No 714 Chestnut Street Philadelphia. Engraved Expressly for the Texas Almanac. Corrected by H. Weckeland, 1860.

This map was an optional purchase with Richardson's Texas Almanac for 1861. Richardson's first almanac was for the year 1857, but no map has been found with that almanac. A Map was published for the 1858 almanac but it was in a much smaller format. The 1859 almanac had a large map, but the present 1860 map is substantially larger than its predecessors. Apparently the same map was used for the 1862 almanac, with a paste-over on the table of railroads at the lower left that updates the railroad information. On the present map it is stated, for instance, that the Buffalo B., Brazos, and Colorado R.R. to Austin has 50 miles completed, where as, the map for the 1862 almanac states that 80 miles have been completed on that line. The present map has the year 1860 in the title, and the 1862 map has the year as 1861.
