Unique Johnsons 1863 Family Atlas. It has the usual hand colored U S and World maps listed in the Contents, and it has the unlisted Civil War map which appears in the 1863 atlas, but it also has bound in on tabs 10 Early (ca. 1800) and scarce American Maps which do make the atlas unique.

<p>

Johnsons New Illustrated (Steel Plate) Family Atlas, with Physical Geograohy, Including the Geophysical, Statistical, and Historical, Including the Latest Federal Census, a Geophysical Index, an a Chronological History of the Civil War in America by Richard Swainson Fisher, MD. Maps Compiled, Drawn, and Engraved under the Supervision of J. H. Colton and A. J. Johnson, New York: Johnson and Browning, Successors to J. H. Colton and Company, 1863.

<p>

Folio (Ca. 18 1/2 x 15 inches) bound in a solid 3/4 black leather and black cloth binding with gilt stamped spine and front cover. The binding shows edgewear and some fading of the front cover which may show in the photo.

<p>

The atlas is complete with105 pages of text & 1 final page which advertises Johnsons Atlas. The contents also has all 99 maps listed and is complete, or rather more than complete. The Contents lists 99 maps (98 & 99 are actually inset on #97). This Atlas includes the unlisted and unnumbered map: the Johnson s Map of the Vicinity of Richmond and Peninsular Campaign in Virginia showing also the Interesting Locations Along the James, Chickahominy and York Rivers Compiled from the Official Maps of the War Department by Johnson and Ward. This unnumbered map is on a tab between Maps numbered 33 and 34 and was apparently done by the publishers.

<p>

The maps are all printed on one side of a sheet only and are all hand colored.

<p>

This atlas contains a great bonus: separately tipped in between text or blank pages are ten very early (circa 1800) maps and charts, each of which has been mounted on linen. These are not colored and have a brownish age tone to them and appear to be trimmed with no loss. The msasurements include the margins. Some maps appear to have previously been folded.

<p>

The accumulated value of these maps probably equals or exceeds the value of the entire atlas. If the item does not sell as offered, these maps will probably be excised and sold separately. (Or even if sold together with the atlas for the advanced buyer to do.)
