Issued 1857, for U.S. Gov. Report. Engraved by Smillie. Drawn by John E. Weyss.
Lovely mid-19th century print. Engraved with excellent, artistic hand color- a superior visual example of this nice early Texas view. Note the survey party at left foreground, a very early panoramic sweeping view of this small town along the river.
Nice looking example, clean, pleasing age patina, any minor age flaws are trivial and easy to overlook or forgive.
