Illinois Chicago Court House Springfield 1864 Johnson & Ward civil war era mapBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
(North America, United States, Midwest, Illinois, Chicago, Court House, Springfield).
Issued 1864, New York by Johnson & Ward.
Large civil war era mid 19th century lithographed map with original hand color.
Decorative version of this map with the vignette view inset of the Chicago court house (!)
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" H x 13 1/2" W.
