County Map of Dakota and Nebraska.
1881 (dated) 11.5 x 8.5 in (29.21 x 21.59 cm)
This is an attractive county map of what later become North and South Dakota, and Nebraska, showing counties in light pastels, roads, rivers, and relief shown by fine hachures. Predates the separation of Dakota into northern and southern territories. Western Nebraska exhibits a primitive county structure. By William M. Bradley, from his Bradley's Alas of the World for Commercial and Library Reference, 1881.
Bradley, Garretson & Co. (fl. c. 1880 - 1900) were prominent cartographic publishers active in the later part of the 19th century. Bradley acquired Samuel Augustus Mitchell Junior's atlas plates in the late 1880s which he used to publish his own version of Mitchell's atlas. The firm had offices both in Philadelphia, at 66 North Fourth Street, and in Brantford, Ontario.
