BRYANT, Tomas. [An uncommon Spanish sea chart of the Gulf coast of the USA]
Seno Mejicano. Hoya II. Parte Setentrional segun los trabajos mas modernos nacionales y estranjeros. Madrid: Direccion de Hidrografia, 1867. 630 x 980mm. With the blindstamp of the Direccion de Hidrografia.
A detailed Spanish chart of the Gulf coast from the Rio Bravo on the Mexico/Texas border to Apalachicola in Florida. There are five inset details: Matagorda & Galveston in Texas; the entrance to the Sabine River on the Texas-Louisiana border; Biloxi in Mississippi; and San Luis, an island just off the south end of Galveston Island. The inset of San Luis is an anomaly: it is shown completely covered in a grid pattern of streets, although northing appears to have ever been built. It is likely to be a resettlement plan caused by the upheaval of the Civil War. Lighthouses are marked in colour.
