Map of Mexico by A. J. Johnson, Antique Atlas Map, circa 1861

$745

About

This is an attractive example of Johnson's 1861 map of Mexico. Presented is a 1861 map of Mexico published by A. J. Johnson and Ross Browning as plate number 56 in the 1861 edition of Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas. the map features the strapwork style border common to Johnson's atlas work from 1860-1863. It depicts all of modern day Mexico as well as most of Texas, Guatemala, Belize and adjacent regions. Color-coded according to Mexican "estados." Also includes some interesting notations such as 'uninhabited,' and 'isolated maintains without grass wood or waters...' An inset map in the lower left corner details the 'Territory and Isthmus of Tehuantepec' – an area of considerable international interest for its potentially easy passage, via a series of proposed canals and railroads, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific. CONDITION: Good condition, save minor toning of paper. No evidence of foxing marks. Color still vibrant and not faded. Full margins intact. Map has been archivally framed in a custom black and silver wooden frame.
