This unique authentic map of the Northern Plains is from "The People' Pictorial Atlas", printed by Ferd. Mayer et fils, New York & Paris.  It's an unusual and scarce map with interesting history, being printed from lithographic plates first used in Keith Johnston's and H.D. Roger's "Atlas of the United States" from 1857.  The plates from that atlas were updated and used for a wall map in 1869. 

The basic topography and information of forts, rivers, and Indian tribes, is derived directly from the wall map and it provides excellent information of this region.  This map does show the development of Nebraska and the territories, with a Dakota essentially lining the eastern part, and Montana and Wyoming with mostly very large and few counties. The railroads in the southern part of the area shown are depicted, including the line from Cheyenne south (to Denver), thought interestingly, Cheyenne itself is not shown, though it was founded in 1867. Also not show is Yellowstone National park which was established one year prior in 1872

Condition:  This map is in A condition with no tears or holes and only some subtle foxing which lends to the age and originality of the map.
