Rare map of Minnesota Territory, one of the earliest obtainable separate maps of Minnesota to appear in a commercial atlas and the earliest to appear in an Atlas published outside the United States.
Includes interesting annotations in the west and early primitive counties in outline color and names towns, rivers, lakes, islands, railroads, etc. collection, representing the only attempt by the British at a comprehensive treatment of the US in Atlas format.
One of the rarest of all US Atlases is the Rogers & Johnston Atlas of the United States &c. Conceived as a collaborative effort between W & AK Johnston (of London) and H.D. Rogers (of Boston), the project began with a wonderful wall map of the United States in 1856, which Rumsey describes as one of the most beautiful maps of the period.
An essential map for collectors of the region.
