Description

Fine example of Roger's & Johnston's map of Kansas Territory and Indian Territory, which appeared in the extremely rare Atlas of the United States.

The map was derived from the monumental and equally rare wall map, an historic collaboration between Professor Rogers, an American, and the Johnston publishing house in Britain. The map shows Kansas extending from The Rocky Mountains and Continental Divide to Missouri, including much of modern day Colorado, including South Pass, Pike's Peak and the South Fork of the Platte River. The Pueblo De S. Carlos and Mineral Springs are noted, but not Denver. The map shows a number of early roads, Indian Lands, forts, mountains, springs, rivers, etc. An area in Kansas reserved for the New York Indians and Shawnees are shown. Substantial coverage in Nebraska as well.

An essential map for regional collectors.
