A colorful and fascinating map with great detail issued eleven years before statehood. The extent of nine Indian reservations and at least three Military reservations, including Camp Apache, are clearly shown in different colors. Numerous confirmed and unconfirmed land claims are named and located. A huge Grand Canyon Forest Reserve is shown. The brown hachured mountain area and the blue waterways combine to provide great visual impact. Information includes watersheds, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, private claims, unsurveyed townships, etc. A beautiful example published while Harry King was the Chief of Drafting and the Hon. Binger Hermann was commissioner.
