This is a later edition from the previous lot (#206) which shows the original four counties of Yavapai, Mohave, Yuma and Pima in the newly organized Arizona Territory, with Prescott as the capital. The Utah/Nevada border is now at 114° and Arizona has its final borders. Nevada has its name in an early configuration engraved in a vertical arc. Early historical details include the Pony Express & United States Mail Route, the emigrant roads to California, and the proposed southern railroad route. Historical and statistical information on the verso.
Original color with light toning primarily along the edges of the sheet, else very good.
