1846 Mitchell Texas, Oregon, and California
This superb reproduction of the original antique hand colored steel plate engraved “A New Map of Texas, Oregon, and California” was published by famed American map maker S. Augustus Mitchell of Philadelphia circa 1846. This is a significantly important map of the westward expansion of the American frontier. Outstanding features of this map include the independent Republic of Texas and Indian Territory as well as the Territories of Missouri, Oregon, and Upper or New California. Mitchell used the latest and best sources for the map, including Arrowsmith’s 1841 map of Texas, Fremont’s and Emory’s maps of their explorations in the region, data from the Lewis & Clark expedition, Nicollet’s map of the region between the Mississippi and the Missouri and Charles Wilkes map of Oregon.

What is a Mirrored Print & Gallery Wrap?
Canvas for Gallery Wrap
Take a good look at your print. The edges are mirrored, so that, the complete image is shown on the face of the frame once it is wrapped. In other words, You don’t lose any of the artwork. Our 2½” mirrored borders, allow your finished product to have a variety of thickness up to 2” deep. Therefore, make sure you choose an experienced framer who can make the frame to the exact specs of your custom print.
Hand-made Rattan Frames
Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
