Description


A very attractive example of Johnson's 1866 diagram of the world's time zones. Consists of a circular engraving in which numerous clocks are drawn, each representing a major world city. At the center is clock representing the time in Washington, D. C. The time in Washington is set at 12 and the remaining clocks are adjusted accordingly. So, if it is 12 in Washington, it is 11:02 in Calcutta and 6:35 in Honolulu, etc. Published by A. J. Johnson and Ward as plate number 6 in the 1866 edition of Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas.
