Pub Note:
The last year of continuous publication that started in 1860. For some reason, Johnson seems to not have published atlases in 1875, 1876, and 1878 - or they were published in such small numbers that we have yet to see them. Full color. Bound in half leather dark green cloth covered boards stamped with "Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas Of The World With A Treatise On Physical Geography By Professor A. Guyot, LL.D." and "Johnson's Family Atlas. Johnson New-York" on the spine in gilt. Back cover is blind stamped same as front.
