Scarce map of the State of Guerrero in Mexico, from Antonio Garcia y Cubas' monumental Atlas Geographico, Estadistico e Historico de la Republica Mexicana, the first atlas of the Mexican Republic.

Garcia Cubas' map of Guerrero is one of the earliest maps of the modern state of Guerrero published in Mexico. The surrounding text includes a wealth of information regarding Guerrero, including History, Climate, Agriculture, Minerals, Livestock, Commerce, Population and Itineraries.

Antonio Garcia y Cubas was Mexico's first great map maker and his work is highly sought after. This map shows the various regions within Guerrero, including, towns, roads, rivers, etc. Only 300 examples of the atlas were reportedly printed and separate maps rarely appear on the market.

This is the first example of this map we have ever offered for sale and the only example we have seen on the market in over 20 years.

Antonio García y Cubas (1832-1912) was a Mexican geographer, historian, writer, and cartographer. An orphan from a young age, Cubas attended the Colegio de San Gregorio and the Colegio de Ingenieros, where he earned a geography degree. In 1856, he became a member of the Sociedad Mexicana de Geografía y Estadística.

Cubas wrote several geographic works, including introductory courses to geography, historical atlases, and maps. He is best known for his Atlas Geográfico, Estadístico e Histórico de la República Mexicana (1857), Carta General de México (1863), and Diccionario Geográfico, Histórico y Biográfico de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos en cinco volúmenes, editados entre 1888 y 1891. He is also praised for his memoir, El Libro de mis Recuerdos (1905). Today, the best books published in anthropology and history in Mexico are given the Antonio García Cubas prize.
