Contours of Discovery: Printed Maps Delineating the Texas and Southwestern Chapters in the Cartographic History of North America

Historic maps are a great untapped resource for studying aspects of social, political, and diplomatic history, the history of art, and linguistics. They show how various European nations perceived Texas and the Southwest and reflect the struggles for empire in the New World.These twenty-two maps, eighteen of which are reproduced in full color (22 x 17 inches or smaller), will be of value to anyone interested in Texas. An illustrated 66-page guide is included, authored by Robert Sidney Martin, Professor and Lillian Bradshaw Endowed Chair, School of Library and Information Studies, Texas Women's University, and J. C. Martin, Interim Director of the Texas State Historical Association. Contours of Discovery comes in a handsome and durable portfolio, and all of the maps are suitable for display or framing.
