Overview

Historic maps are a great untapped resource for studying aspects of social, political, and diplomatic history, the history of art, and linguistics. 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. They show how various European nations perceived Texas and the Southwest and reflect the struggles for empire in the New World. An illustrated sixty-six-page guide is included, authored by J. C. Martin, executive director of the San Jacinto Museum of History in Houston, and Robert Sidney Martin, director and librarian of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Contours of Discovery comes in a handsome portfolio, and all of the maps are suitable for display or framing.
