With a "To the Subscribers to our New Atlas" loosely inserted: In order to avoid the expense of purchasing any other Map or Atlas for MANY YEARS, we, the undersigned, - publishers of Johnson's New Illustrated Atlas - have been to the cost and trouble of having inserted EXTRA GUARDS between the Maps in the Atlas, so that any person with a little MUCILAGE or PASTE can easily introduce new MAPS from time to time, without the least detriment to the work. Should there be important changes made, such as NEW TERRITORIES laid out; NEW STATES admitted; a RAILROAD to the golden shores of the Pacific established, or any other marked change in this or the'Old World', requiring a few NEW MAPS, they will, OF COURSE, be made for our Atlas... I have tried my best to accurately describe everything, but please refer to the photos as well, as they are part of the description.
