This is an authentic, antique map of the Territory of Arizona. The map was published by the General Land Office of the United States as part of an annual report for the department of the interior in 1901.
A colorful and fascinating map with great detail issued eleven years before statehood. The extent of nine Indian reservations and at least three Military reservations, including Camp Apache, are clearly shown in different colors. Numerous confirmed and unconfirmed land claims are named and located. A huge Grand Canyon Forest Reserve is shown. The brown mountain areas and the blue waterways combine to provide great visual impact. Information includes watershed, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, private claims, un-surveyed townships, etc.
A beautiful example published while Harry King was the Chief of Drafting and Binger Hermann was commissioner. Included with the map is the associated 142 page dis-bound report from the Territorial Governor of Arizona, Nathan Oakes Murphy, that includes 27 photographic plates and 1 small folding map.
Condition: Issued folding with a binding trim at left. Report text and plates are clean and bright but should be considered a collection of loose sheets.
