Book Description 1866. Near the forefront of the atlas publication industry for a quarter century was mapmaker and aggressive marketer Alvin Jewitt Johnson. Around 1860, in a transaction that remains somewhat mysterious, Johnson acquired a set of detailed plates from J.H. Colton, one of the foremost mapmakers of the century, and used them to print the Johnson atlas that was to find its way into homes across the country. Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas was first published in 1860, and today these maps have become prized collectibles and true works of cartographic art. The attention to detail and fine hand coloring of these maps make them some of the best collectibles maps from the 19th century. Seller Inventory # 1555141

Book Description A.J. Johnson, New York, 1867. New York: A.J. Johnson, 1867. Unbound, colored engraved map, decorative boarder, 16" x13". Some toning and aging, a couple of chips at the edge of a very ample margin; otherwise fairly bright and clean and in very nice condition. Alvin Jewett Johnson (1827-1884) appears to have entered the map publishing business in 1860. It appears that he obtained J.H. Colton's map copyrights, and published the first installment of the Johnson's New Illustrated (Steel Plate) Family Atlas In that year. Many of the maps Johnson would use would bear the J.H. Colton copyright for many years. Johnson's Atlas would run from 1860 to 1885. While Johnson would use somewhat similar boarder designs, map coloring would appear a little heavier than the earlier Colton maps. This map of Asia is from the 1867 edition of Johnson's Illustrated Family Atlas, and has nice coloring and good detail. The 19th century political geography makes this map interesting from that standpoint. May require extra postage.Ristow 325-326. Seller Inventory # 101162
