Folio 3 of the U.S.G.S Topographic Atlas of the United States, covering the physical geography of the Texas Region and following the boundaries of the region as outlined by Mellish. The maps were compiled by Robert T. Hill under the director of U.S.G.S. Director Charles Walcott.

The atlas includes numerous photographs identifying specific physical features across the state, as well as several sheets of inset maps outlining various types of mountains, rivers, canyons and plains that can be found there.
