Description:

A.J. Johnson, who published out of New York City, was one of the leading cartographic publishers in the latter half of the century, producing popular atlases, geographies and separate maps. This map is a nice example of Johnson's, and thus early American, cartography. It shows a prodigious amount of topographical and political information. The roads and railroads are illustrated and crossed the state at this time. One of the interesting features is an indication of the "U.S. Mail Route" crossing the barren Bear County. An inset of the pan handle, in the lower left, is flanked by insets of Sabine Lake and Galveston Bay. With its attractive hand color and strapwork border, this map is as attractive as it is interesting.
