Item:200992423064This is a huge Black and White COPY (No Color) of an original 1862 (undated) Map of PENNSYLVANIA, VIRGINIA, DELAWARE, and MARYLAND by A.J. Johnson This map offers a fascinating snapshot of the north-south borderlands shortly following the outbreak of the American Civil War. Map shows all four states in full . This is the last edition of this Johnson map to feature an undivided Virginia. Engraved decorative views depicting the “University of Virginia,” “Richmond,” and “Fortress Monroe” decorate the upper left, lower left and lower right hand quadrants, respectively. Features the strapwork style border common to Johnson’s atlas work from 1860 to 1863. Published by A. J. Johnson and Ward as plate numbers 32 and 33 in the 1862 edition of Johnson’s New Illustrated Family Atlas . This is the first edition of the Johnson’s Atlas to bear the Johnson & Ward imprint. CHECK OUT THE ODD SHAPE OF VIRGINIA BEFORE WEST VIRGINIA SPLIT OFF THE VERY NEXT YEAR !! This map is HUGE ---- 33 inches by 24 inches!!! The city and county names in the title block do not necessarily mean they are shown on the map. I will mail out in a large mailing tube. Again, this is a Black & White COPY of the huge map, NOT THE ORIGINAL. I have the original and it is not for sale. Would make a great gift !! Thanks for looking!
