A colorful and fascinating map with great detail published just ten years before statehood was gained. The extent of nine Indian reservations, four Military reservations, including Fort Apache, and numerous Forest Reservations 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 the blue waterways combine to provide great visual impact. Details include watershed, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, private claims, unsurveyed townships, etc. The 1902 edition is less common than most other issues.
