1856 Map of US South West
Mapmaker & Publisher: Johnson and Ward
Date and Place: 1865; New York City
Source: Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas
Dimensions and Type: 16 x 23 with centerfold; steel-plate engraving with original hand color
Condition: Good+; color a bit faded; a bit of soiling in the margins. Repaired 4" tear upper left entering NE Nevada
One in a long series of SW USA maps by Johnson and successors. This is Johnson Map Project version 3.0 and reflect the west near the close of the Civil War. Several NM counties trend into AZ. NV lacks its' Southern tip. Many counties yet to be formed in all States and Territories , but less so in California.
This is a very serviceable example, but the color is a bit faded and the tear, while professionally repaired, can still be seen, so the price reflects those flaws.
