A.J. Johnson. "Johnson's Georgia and Alabama."
New York: Johnson & Ward, 1862. 17 x 24. Lithograph. Full original hand-color. With small chip in bottom margin edge. Very good condition.
An attractive map of Alabama and Georgia from A.J. Johnson's atlas issued during the Civil War. Johnson, who published out of New York City, was one of the leading cartographic publishers in the latter half of the century, producing popular atlases, geographies and so on. This finely detailed map is an good example of Johnson's work. Townships, towns, roads, rail lines, rivers and lakes are shown throughout. Of particular note is the extensive road and rail network in the states that would be come so important in the forthcoming conflict. The clear presentation of cartographic information and the warm hand coloring make this an attractive as well as interesting historical document. With vignettes of Tuscaloosa Observatory and Rice-Mill on Savannah River.
