Nuevo Mapa Geografico de la America Septentrional

José Antonio de Alzate y Ramírez was a Mexican-born cleric and leading scientist educated at the best academies of New Spain. He created maps from records kept in the archives of Mexico, explorers' descriptions, and other maps of the day. Although his depictions of the rivers of the region are severely skewed, this map includes the missions of La Bahia, San Sabá, Orcoquisac, and those near San Antonio as well as Presidio Los Adaes.
