A colorful and fascinating map with great detail 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 Reserve is shown. The brown hachured mountain area and the blue waterways combine to provide great visual impact. Information includes watershed, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, private claims, unsurveyed townships, etc. We believe this is the first map to name Sedona, here called Sedonia.
Great impression and colors. Hint of toning along one fold.
