A nicely detailed map of Texas and the Indian Territory (Oklahoma) issued by the Philadelphia firm of O.W. Gray and Son.  The firm began its publishing around mid-century and published regional and U.S. atlases up through the 1880s.  This map is typical of their work, with an attractive presentation and interesting detail.  Information on the many railroads in the region are of particular note.  The map features a number of interesting insets, including riparian and hypsometric maps, and maps of Matagurda Bay, Austin, Galveston and its bay, and the southern tip of the state.
