From the Colton Storm catalogue: "The Spanish expedition of the Marques de San Miguel de Aguayo to secure control of Texas is described in Pena's Derrotero. Several Spanish missions had been forced to retreat to San Antonio by the French and the Indians. The Aguayo expedition (1720-1722) retrieved the Spanish position. This is generally considered the first book relating wholly to Texas. According to a mansucript note on the verso of the manuscript map, the information was supplied by Aguayo himself. One other copy (of seven known) contains this manuscript map."
