The large and scarce edition of this colorful General Land Office map with terrific detail throughout. It shows the extent of nine Indian Reservations and at least four Military reservations including Fort Apache. Indian reservations are outlined in green. Military reservations are shown in solid red. Private claims, confirmed and unconfirmed, are outlined in red. The brown hachured mountain area and the blue waterways combine to make an attractive map with great visual impact. Filled with details on watershed, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, private claims, unsurveyed townships, etc. A fascinating map of the territory that deserves much study. Seldom seen in this size.
