A colorful and fascinating map that provides a detailed look at the territory just nine years before statehood. The extent of nine Indian reservations and at least four Military reservations, including Fort Apache, are clearly shown in different colors. Private claims, confirmed and unconfirmed, are outlined in red. The Grand Canyon Forest Reserve is shown. Brown hachured mountainous areas and blue waterways combine to provide great visual impact. Details include watershed, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, private claims, unsurveyed townships, etc. This is the first map to name Sedona, here called Sedonia.
Beautiful color and impression. Folding, as issued.
