Maker: Johnson and Ward.
Antique hand colored map of California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. Published during a great time of expansion and change in the US West, as well as during the Civil War. Includes mining districts, emigrant trails, the Santa Fe Trail, the Pony Express Route and several proposed railroads, American Indian tribes, geological features, and political divisions. The Grand Canyon is labeled as the Colorado River and we have read that the horizontal county lines are a continuing feature from previous maps, but the counties were never truly divided in that way. Original hand coloring, good detail of landforms, water bodies, and towns. Measures approx. 17.25 x 24.5 inches. Good antique condition with overall toning and some foxing/signs of age.
