Large pictorial map, printed with tourist lodging Directory beside. Reverse is printed in panels, a second map to extoll the regional virtues and attract visitors, primarily the outdoor sportsman type.
Wonderful time piece, great series of eight photographic vignettes surrounding the large Lakes region map.
Publisher's artwork color pictorial paper wrappers, a huge single sheet multi-folded down to this brochure size.
Sheet/ brochure is physically old and shows various mostly small normal light signs of handling and time. Paper is not new or in "new-like" condition. Paper still supple, several short minor fold line splits folding paper time stress, still fairly fresh and clean, worthy of display condition.
Scarce and appealing early 20th century thematic pictorial map.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this scarce antique item survives -which is pretty nice overall, a few scattered small age flaws but nothing offensive nor severe.
