  • DESCRIPTION: A handsome map from Johnson's 'New Illustrated Family Atlas of the World." This large double-hemisphere chart depicts the continents and oceans, including Antarctica and some early knowledge of the Northwest Passage.

Johnson's adoption of lithographic processes enabled his firm to produce charts more cheaply and in larger numbers.
