254. Mapa de las tierras compradas al gobierno y particulares par el Corl. Desmenaro : [región de Honda, Colombia] / F. Roulin, fecit.. Bogotá. 1825. Colored pen-and-ink ms., 39 x 59 cm. Scale ca. 1:125,000. 2004-632061.

In 1819, a political union of the present-day nations of Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, and Ecuador was achieved. This federation known as Gran Colombia was led by Simón Bolívar. Much of Bolívar's efforts involved establishing a nation and government in the midst of the continuing struggle for independence from Spain. Despite attempts to consolidate the central government in Bogotá, the period between 1819 and 1830 witnessed considerable internal dissensions that climaxed with the secession of Venezuela and Ecuador from Gran Colombia in 1830. During that time, Gran Colombia arranged for a loan of £2,000,000 sterling from Great Britain. In partial repayment of the loan, British creditors were granted lands in various provinces of Gran Colombia which they in turn attempted to sell to immigrants. This motivation appears to be the impetus for the commissioning of this detailed and beautifully rendered map of a portion of Mariquita Province (now Tolima Department) west of the Magdalena River. Map includes roads, streams, towns and settlements, delineation of government and private lands, and carefully rendered pictorial representation of vegetation, cultivated fields, and relief. Map includes a well-executed shield of Gran Colombia and an elegant cartouche. Map is oriented with east at top. An accompanying letter explains that Roulin worked for a British sponsored agricultural association involved with various colonization schemes in the newly independent nation of Gran Colombia. In that letter, Roulin's services were requested for similar surveys in the regions of Caracas and Mérida (in Venezuela). The name of J. D. Powles, one of the three principals involved in the 1819 loan, and whose name appears in the letter, apparently was the individual requesting Roulin's services. Contemporary background information for the colonizing schemes found in Alexander Walker's two volume work, Colombia: Being a Geographical, Statistical, Agricultural, Commercial, and Political Account of that Country (London, 1822), was intended for the "general reader, the merchant, and the colonist" pointing out "the immense advantages which it [Colombia] presents to colonists from Britain."
