NEW YORK HERALD, Nov. 30, 1861
* Gulf of Mexico coast map
* Texas - Mexico
An extremely decorative issue, as the entire front page is taken up with a huge map headed: "THE GREAT EUROPEAN ALLIANCE AGAINST THE MEXICAN REPUBLIC" with a subhead: "The Gulf Slope of Mexico--The Harbor of Vera Cruz and the National Road to the Capital--Scene of Operations of the English, French and Spanish Expedition." with the map showing much details. There is an inset showing Cerro Gordo, Mexico City, Tampico, Castle of San Juan De Ulua, and a diagram of the city of Vera Cruz.
In additional to showing the Mexican coastline the map extends to the cost of Texas and Louisiana as well, showing New Orleans, Sabine City, Galveston, Houston, Padre Island, and present-day Brownsville, and so much more including much of the interior of Texas.
A wealth of Civil War reporting on the inside pages. Twelve pages, very nice condition.
