1873 Map of the Territory of New Mexico

From the press release:
Between the Lines: Culture and Cartography on the Road to Statehood

While New Mexico’s external boundaries were relatively established by the 1870s, the counties and their borders were still subject to adjustments. This colorful map displays counties and land-grant boundaries. To put New Mexico’s geographical size and location in proportion, the English publisher added an inset map of the United States.
