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.
size 23.5 15.5 image.

California Territories of New Mexico and Utah 1854 - Johnson An extremely rare and large historically significant map of the Western States and territories, finely engraved with original color and decorative border, this truly a beautiful map from A. J. Johnson's southwest series. Published in 1862 at the height of the American Civil War, this stunning map depicts the state of California and the territories of Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. Representing the third state of the Johnson southwest map, this map varies most significantly from its 1861 predecessor in the addition of a clearly defined Arrizona (yes, with 2 'r's) Territory. In 1861 'Arrizona' was an alternate name for the lands added to the New Mexico territory by the 1854 Gadsden Purchase. The Confederate Territory of Arizona lasted less than a year before it was seized by the Union Army and dismantled in favor of the current configuration with the Arizona – New Mexico border situated along a north-south axis. Some have suggested that the current border between Arizona and New Mexico was chosen for no other reason than that it differed from the Confederate border. Native American tribes, proposed railroads, mail routes, explorer's tracks, and treaty lines. In the high desert region near modern day Quartzite, Arizona, a note reads 'in the vicinity of this place a tract of country is found which is said by Trappers to be exceedingly and fertile and abundantly timbered and well- watered.' Johnson also notes silver deposits in this same region. 'Vegas' appears roughly in its current location though at the time there was little there but a natural water source and an abandoned Mormon fort. The famed Pony Express Route is delineated as it passes through Nebraska, Utah, and Nevada on its way to California. This is an extraordinarily example of one of the scarcest and most desirable 19th century American atlas maps of the southwestern part of the United States. Published by A. J. Johnson and Ward as plate numbers 58 and 59 in the 1862 edition of Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas.
Condition: Very good, fold in middle with some discoloration, slight tear at bottom otherwise wide margin and normal age browning
on margin edges.
