Map of the Republic completed for the General Land Office of the Republic by John Arrowsmith, Soho Square, London, in 1843. John Arrowsmith was one of the foremost cartographers in London from 1839 to his death in 1873. The map was completed during the second term of Sam Houston as president of the republic during a period in which the infant republic was negotiating for recognition from the United Kingdom. This was due to on-going difficulties in having Texas annexed by the United States as Houston had favored.
