Description

An Description of his Overland Expedition Through Texas in 1767.

Interesting early map of the Texas, the Gulf Coast and Mexico, from a German edition of Pierre du De Pages Voyages Au Tour Du Monde, published in 1782.

Pages accompanied the Spanish Governor of Texas on a Journey from New Orleans to Natchitoches and on to San Antonio by way of the Red River in 1767.

The map tracks Pages' journey from New Orleans to Acapulco, first up the Red River, then overland, identifying a number of Missions and other settlements and Indian Villages in Texas and Louisiana.

Humboldt notes Pages' visit to Saltillo in 1767 in his seminal work on New Spain.

Rarity

The German editon is rare.  This is the first example we have ever seen on the market.
