Product Description

Original Atlas front piece antique print. This authentic vintage print of Atlas front piece comes from Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas of the World. Published by Johnson and Ward No. 113 Fulton Street New York in 1864. The Family Atlas was first published by Johnson in 1860 and continued until 1870. This one of a kind old print of Atlas front piece shows a group of Native Americans looking down from a hill on the United States Westward expansion. Railroads, steam boats, larger cities and settler's frontier homes can be seen. This historic Atlas front piece print is truly a fine example of American history printed near the end of the American Civil War. This print would make a nice addition to any collection or a beautiful Atlas front piece antique print gift. The total paper size for this print is approximately 18" x 14"., Colton’s General Atlas was published by the firm of Johnson & Browning, and the next year he published the first edition of his own atlas, titled, Johnson’s New Illustrated Steel Plate Family Atlas, With Descriptions Geographical, Statistical and Historical. The early editions of the Family Atlas, as it is most commonly referred to, was comprised of maps developed by the Colton firm, and the title page announces that the publishers, Johnson & Browning, are “formerly successors to J.H. Colton and Company” However, rather than successor, Johnson became a competitor of the Colton firm, and the Family Atlas became a competitor to the atlases of both Colton and S. Augustus Mitchell, the other prominent atlas publisher of the day.- ref. Johnson Map Project
