Rare 1853 Texas map acquired by Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi

The Corpus Christi Caller Times wrote a story on a rare 1853 map of Texas by Jacob de Cordova that was acquired by Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi. The map is in fantastic condition for its age. You can read the article at: http://www.caller.com/news/education/local/rare-map-obtained-by-am-cc-in-string-of-coincidences-3036c733-67bc-047b-e053-0100007fed76-376807461.html

As we continue to work through scanning maps from our {Map Scanning} Project, I hope we can turn up a map of this caliber. We do have a few noteable Texas maps in our collection already, such as the map of the Santa Gertrudis Estate (of King Ranch fame), and we hope to have more in the future.
