Description
English: One of the finest Mountains and River’s Chart published in the mid 19th century. This is the 1862 edition of Johnson and Ward chart or map of the relative distances of the world’s great rivers and the relative heights of the world’s great mountains. Includes a multitude of details regarding the heights of important cities, glaciers, volcanoes, and tree lines. Chart even includes Niagara Falls, the Great Pyramid, St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and St. Paul’s in London. It is extremely rare to find this map such fine condition as this one because it was issued at the front of Johnson’s Atlas, where most of the heavy damage from moisture, soiling, and general use was sustained. Based upon a similar map copyrighted by J. H. Colton in 1855. Prepared by Johnson and Ward for the 1862 issue as plate nos. 2-3 in Johnson’s New Illustrated Family Atlas.
