Issued c. 1866-79 [1867 dated on map], New York by A.J. Johnston.
Fine large format mid 19th century lithographed map with original hand color.
Like most Johnson maps of this era, this example is one of several/ numerous variant issues which display varying borders and geographical details as time moves on.
The two left side corners of the sheet as well as the right side blank margin display a light old damp stain which is visible but not at all visually offensive.
Nice looking example, pleasing age patina, light soiling and small scattered spotting, any minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Original center fold as issued.
Sheet Measures c. 26 1/2" H x 18" W.
