Johnson & Ward. "Johnson's Australia".
New York: Johnson & Ward, 1864. 13 1/4 x 15 1/4. Lithography. Full original hand-color. A few spots from impurities in the paper. Overall, very good condition.
An attractive map of Australia from A.J. Johnson's mid-nineteenth century atlas of the world. The Johnson firm, out of New York City, went through several manifestations and was one of the leading cartographic publishers in the latter half of the century, producing a large corpus of popular atlases. This finely detailed map is a good example of Johnson's, and thus early American, cartography.
