Produced by prolific American lithographer Julius Bien, this depiction of the Utah territory bears a distinctive aesthetic and a tremendous amount of detail. Bien produced a large body of work throughout the 19th century, and his works signature style immediately transports the viewer back in time. Bien is perhaps most well known for his lithography work with John Woodhouse Audubon on a color edition of his father’s iconic The Birds of America in the late 1850s.
At the time of the production of this map Utah had not achieved statehood and was still considered a territory. The rugged terrain and geologic features common throughout the region, including the Great Salt Lake, have long shaped the culture and economy of Utah. The completion of the first transcontinental rail line occurred just seven years prior to this publication. It brought numerous immigrants to the region, establishing Salt Lake City and creating a prosperous community. The rail line opened access to the American West and spurred on a boom of westward expansion.
Utah experienced economic development in mineral mining throughout the late 19th century, and mining towns sprung up throughout the western regions of the state. Utah was admitted into the Union in 1896 as the forty-fifth state, and Biel’s illustration remains an authentic piece of American cartographical history. As Utah developed through the end of the 19th-century, government maps proved vital tools for residents and merchants alike, allowing for civic planning, agricultural record maintenance, and planned railroad lines that opened access to the state.
