τήν τε γὰρ χώραν, ἔφη, ἐγὼ ἂν τὴν σὴν ἐβουλόμην τῇ ἐμῇ δυνάμει μείζω ποιεῖν μᾶλλον ἢ τὴν ἐμὴν ὑπὸ σοῦ ὁρᾶν οὕτως αὐξανομένην:Is τήν τε γὰρ χώραν just an acc of direct object put forward in some rhet figure or is it something different, like an acc of respect or something?

τήν τε γὰρ χώραν is fronted. It's picked up by τὴν σὴν.

τήν . . . χώραν . . . τὴν σὴν . . .
