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.
