C I R Q L A R. Original antique prints, books, maps and atlases. Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas. Published New York: Johnson and Ward, 1862.Original hand colored engraved maps of all of the USA plus all foreign countries. 18 1/2" X 14 1/2" (spine). Please note the following condition "issues".
This atlas must have been born in, or certainly lived in, most of its life in either Ohio or Indiana (flip a coin). We say this because of this maps' particular condition isnt good: it is a train wreck. Good news: this is the only map with any significant problems. The only other issues that separates this complete atlas from one of its steps above brethren is there are some paper losses in the lower left (or right, depending on ones perspective) of the first few maps.The paper loss, strictly limited to the margins, begins in the map of North America (no issues at all), and ends with the combined states of PA, VA, DE and MD. I'm overstating the issues to be sure but will emphatically state that the only "problem child", where there might be a loss of paper is the 2 page New Military Map of the US. Totally saleable, no big deal; we're just over describing the small issues. We are pleased to offer this very rare beautiful COMPLETE original hand colored Johnson's Family Atlas, dated 1862. With the insignificant minor "issues" that we've more than described, this is a clean and complete 1862 atlas.
We've had the opportunity to have handled hundreds of this atlas over the years and can say with certainty that this is among the best. Thank you for looking and please be sure and look at our other auctions for other fine works by Audubon from the first as well as the 1860 editions of the.
