This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Missouri and Kansas, published by Johnson out of New York in 1862. The map is color coded by county and shows railroads, wagon roads, rivers, canals, forts, large towns, and villages of the mid-19th century. Important towns that can be found within the map include St. louis, Independence, Kansas City, and Lawrence to name a few.

The map is surrounded by three decorative vignettes illustrating a fire on the prairie, Santa Fe from the Great Missouri Trail, and a scene of natives spear fishing along a river edge. Counties and surveyed lands only extend so far into Kansas the rest of which is lacking cartographic detail save for the proposed route of the Pacific Railroad, and the legendary Santa Fe Trail. At the time of printing, much of this land was still in control of the plains tribes.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
