Johnson's North America

(United States / Canada / Mexico / Alaska / Hawaii)

Issued New York, 1867 by A.J. Johnson.

Lovely and very uncommon mid-19th century antique map. Engraved and lithographed with original hand color.

Of cartographic note for depicting the short-lived Stickeen Territory above British Columbia . Seen here on this uncommon issue of the map is the completely bogus New Columbia , a huge area which never actually existed and is only shown on very few maps.*

With large detailed inset map of the Sandwich Islands (Hawaiian Group) at bottom left.

Nice decorative border unique to this transitional era of printing (see Laurie Johnson Atlas Project).

In attractive well preserved condition; minor light surface age wear and overall gently uniform paper toning as typical. Overall the printed area is clean, well preserved and very attractive.

Original fold line as issued.

Sheet measures c. 18" x 26 1/2".

Engraved area measures c. 17" x 23 1/2".
