Arader Galleries

Arader Galleries is an established dealership specialising in antique works on paper, paintings and rare books. Founded in 1974 by W. Graham Arader III, in its early days Arader Galleries focused on rare maps, and has been credited with helping to elevate the status of antique maps as desirable collector's items. Arader has subsequently expanded its focus to include rare books, prints, and watercolors, especially works of natural history, and is now the largest dealer of the rare and highly sought-after folio prints from John James Audubon's famous 'Birds of America'.

In 1981, Arader established the Arader Grading System as a measure of the value (financial and historical) of rare maps, prints, and books, as defined by conceptual importance, aesthetic quality, condition, and rarity. Arader Galleries have supplied items to a number of prominent private collectors, and now has gallery premises in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Houston, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, and New York.

Manuscript Map of Spanish Florida
Original Manuscript Map "Plano De Una Parte De La Provincia De La Luisiana y De Otra De La Florida Occidental y De La Provincia De Texas". [SPANISH FLORIDA]. Ink and watercolour wash on paper, c. 1803-1806. 21 4/8 x 41 2/8 inches sheet. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE AND HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT MAP SHOWING THE ORIGINSOF THE STATE OF TEXAS AT THE TURN OF THE 19TH CENTURY. A manuscript map emphatically asserting in bold color the borders claimed by Spain between its Provinces of Texas and West Florida, and the territories of the United States, including the Province of Louisiana newly conveyed by Napoleon over Spanish objections. The valuable lands within what would ultimately become the State of Texas are shown extending westward, highlighted by the principal river systems between the Sabine and the strategic capital of San Antonio. Probably drafted by a surveyor with the Casa-Calvo expedition of 1805, and possibly supervised by celebrated cartographer Nicholas de Finiels. The map focuses on an area of extreme Spanish interest at a time when it was becoming impossible for that once great Imperial power to maintain its grip in North America in the face of reverses in Europe and the increasing hegemony of the young United States.
