This is an original antique map of Missouri and Kansas, published by Johnson out of New York in 1862. The map is color coded by county and shows railroads, wagon roads, rivers, canals, forts, large towns, and villages of the mid-19th century. Important towns that can be found within the map include St. louis, Independence, Kansas City, and Lawrence to name a few.

The map is surrounded by three decorative vignettes illustrating a fire on the prairie, Santa Fe from the Great Missouri Trail, and a scene of natives spear fishing along a river edge. Counties and surveyed lands only extend so far into Kansas the rest of which is lacking cartographic detail save for the proposed route of the Pacific Railroad, and the legendary Santa Fe Trail. At the time of printing, much of this land was still in control of the plains tribes.

Condition: This map is in A condition with bold original color on fine paper with ample margins on all sides. Some light offsetting is apparent in and around the map title.
