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.

From the COO-CHE TO PA Pass to the Wahsatch Mountains, 1855 Gunnison/Beckwith - A large lithograph map with original coloring and Gunnison's final and most detailed map of the series that Wheat illustrated in full. Minimal detail in the north and south, the map provides much detail along the route through western Colorado and Utah. Locates Fort Uintah, Brown's Hole, the Old Spanish Trail, and Bridger's Pass. An interesting and important map of the region that would eventually be followed by the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. Special Note: Capt. Gunnison was killed by hostile Indians at the western portion of this exploration, but Capt. E.G. Beckwith recovered his survey notes and completed the map. Condition: Very Good, some folds with light discoloring
 small margins.
size 23.2" x 31.5" image

1891 Utah Railroad Map. Shows the seven railroads by colors. Excellent detail in this very large map. 17-1/2x25 in. $100

Utah Railroad Survey Map - 1855. This fascinating map was published in 1855 by the United States Government, as part of a report on "Explorations and Surveys for a Rail Road Route from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean." The area included on this map goes from the valley of the Green River in the east to the Great Salt Lake in the west. Locations of proposed railway lines are clearly marked, as well as trails used by emigrants moving to California. Salt Lake City is shown by the shore of the Great Salt Lake, and smaller settlements north and south of the city are also shown. The photo at the bottom of this listing is a close-up of the area around Salt Lake City. Unfortunately it is out of focus, but my digital camera will not allow me to take a clearer image. The text to the left of the city reads "Great Salt Lake City. 1854 May 5-6. Magn. Var. 15-34." Below the city, the settlements of Cottonwood Village and Willow Spring are included. The lines running through and next to the city are proposed railroad routes and the "Salt Lake Road." This map is in very good condition, with beautiful modern hand watercoloring. It is printed on thin paper that was originally folded into the government report. The creases along the original folds are slightly browned, but they are not visually distracting. The creases are not torn or splitting. The left margin of this map has been extended with acid-free paper to facilitate framing. The extension is in the margin only; all of the map image and border is original. 20" x 23" $250
