Caribbean Islands Cuba Puerto Rico Jamaica 1864 Johnson & Ward civil war era mapBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
Johnson's Cuba, Jamaica, and Porto Rico.
(North America, Caribbean Sea, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Bahama, Havana).
Issued 1864, New York by Johnson & Ward.
Large civil war era mid 19th century lithographed map with original hand color.
With an inset of Porto Rico and a very detailed small inset of havana Cuba city and harbor. The key beside this inset relates to the Parishes of Jamaica.
A decorative scrolled border adds to the visual appeal of the map. These borders changed over time and help to identify different states and issues of Johnson maps, which makes them an interesting area to collect.
Nice looking example, pleasing age patina, light soiling and small scattered spotting, any minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Sheet Measures c. 18" x 13 1/2".
