Description

Remarkable large format map of Arizona Territory, the earliest separately issued map of the Territory to appear in a commercial atlas. Arizona Territory appears with only 5 counties, Yavahpi, Yuma, Mojave, Pima and Maricopa. The map illustrates the early railroads, settlements, mining districts, Indian reservations, forts and other important early features in the territory.

Asher & Adams' atlas was one of the first United States atlases to exclusively feature railroad lines, showing minimal topography.

Condition Description
Discoloration at centerfold.
