Rare map of the midwest and plains, extending into Kanzas, Nebraska and Indian Territory, from Rogers & Johnston's Atlas of the United States, one of the rarest American atlases of the 19th Century.
The map is a fragment of Rogers & Johnston's excellent and equally rare wall map. The map names counties, towns, rivers, Indians, etc. The evolution of the Rogers & Johnston work extends to 1873, when a modified example of the wall map was issued in Atlas form, first as the People's Pictorial Atlas by J. David Williams and later as the Jones Historical Atlas, two of the rarer and more interesting late 19th Century American works. An important rarity for map collector's of this region.
