Interesting variant of the usual Territorial map of the period. This one is overprinted in three color and showing "Unconfirmed Grants", "Reservations", and "Confirmed Grants". Additionally this is a list of 80 mining districts, all of which are numbered on the map. Rail line shown as is what surveying had been accomplished. Here it is the "Navajoe" Reservation. Several Counties yet to be formed. Albuquerque just makes the map, smaller than Bernalillo or Los Lunas Unique original New Mexico map
