Johnson’s California, Territories of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Utah 1863 - A large engraved and original hand colored map of California & the Southwest, the map has a very decorative border, pastel colored counties and shows a number of interesting territorial anomalies. Nevada has its lower corner truncated, leaving Las Vegas in Arizona. Utah extends approximately 1 degree too far to the west, prior to the last set of reductions undertaken by the US Government. Several counties still extend into both Arizona and New Mexico. In each of the states and territories, the county configurations are still largely incomplete. This is one of the most detailed accurate commercial maps of the era that includes the US Pony express route, explorer routes, the major routes of commerce, towns, forts, Indian Tribes, mountains, rivers, roads, mining districts, proposed railroad routes, important dates in the evolution of the US-Mexico Boundary, etc. Johnson's map of the West is one of the most interesting and collectable maps of the period. The maps were updated annually or more often, showing profound territorial boundary changes and county formations from year to year and even within a single year. Condition: Very good, fold in middle with some staining along the fold, water marks on margins and some light foxing inside image.
