Note:
See notes to other issues of this map. This is earlier than our other 1861 edition (3270) and has an unusual boundary for Utah, extending east in Nebraska in the northeast corner. Other changes from the later 1861 edition include H.G. Bond as publisher, no County formation date in the Explanation list, different map in the Zoological Distribution inset, and some changes to topography. An earlier edition, 1860, is listed by Phillips as done by M.F. Maury (Maury's name was dropped after the Civil War began because of his support for the Confederacy); also, a late edition, 1868, by H.H. Lloyd. This the first edition copyrighted by Smith. See our two 1862 editions. With black top and bottom rollers. The United States is panted in full color by county; Mexico by state.
