Johnson's China

Issued New York, 1862-7 by A.J. Johnson.

Lovely antique engraved and lithographed map with original hand color. With inset maps of Amoy and Canton at bottom left.

Map captures the region at a fascinating time in history, when China was an Empire and its borders were ever-changing.

In attractive well preserved condition; paper moderately uniformly age toned, overall the map is clean.
