This is a beautiful example of A. J. Johnson and R. Browning's 1861 map of the World's animal kingdom and the productive industries of various countries. The map is divided into two parts. The upper map shows the geographical distribution and range of the principal members of the animal kingdom, with an inset 'bird map.' The lower map illustrates the productive industries of various countries establishing the principle features of commerce and navigation. Both maps are colors coded according to continents with countries labeled but their political boundaries not shown. Mainly focusing on mammels, the upper map depicts the general range and distribution of principal animals by continuous or dotted lines. A small paragraph on the lower right corner of the upper map contains information about the markings on the map. The lower map marks the products of each country and also indicates various maritime routes. A statistical table on the bottom of this map notes the area and population of the principal countries. This map features the strapwork style border common to Johnson's atlas work from 1860 to 1863. Published by A. J. Johnson and Browning as plate no. 9-10 in the 1861 edition of Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas. This is the last edition of the Johnson Atlas to bear the 'Johnson and Browning' imprint. Subsequent editions reflect Ward's 1862 acquisition Ross C. Browning's shares in the firm.
