Title: Johnson's New Chart of National Emblems
Publisher: Johnson & Ward, NY, 1863
Edition: First Edition.
Book Description 1864. 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. This double page illustrates national emblems, and signals for pilots. Great detail and coloring!. Seller Inventory # 1554551
