Oliver J. Stuart. “Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona.” From McNally’s System of Geography. New York: A.S. Barnes & Co., 1874. 10 3/4 x 8 3/8. Lithograph. Original hand color. Very good condition.
A map of the western states and territories; only Nevada and Oregon were states, the rest still being territories. This was just after the transcontinental railroad had been built, and that is shown running through the middle of the area shown, with spurs heading north and south from Sacramento. Topography is well delineated, and towns are indicated throughout. A nice image of the American West just before the Centennial.
