FIRST and THIRD photos show details. SECOND photo shows the full map you'll receive. The scanner makes it appear the maps have yellowed. That is not true. They are a true shade of cream and very nice.
Doesn't this simply make you smile? I just love this little gem. It's a vintage map from a 1950s text book. It's unusual because it depicts the topography of the state, a bit of its history, major cities, agricultural and industrial pursuits with sketches in lieu of printed words.
The map is in shades of black and cream and would make a nice graphic statement if matted and framed. A black mat would really set off this map.
It would be fun to frame several of these maps and display them in a group. For instance, a group might include your home state, states you've resided in, visited on vacation or a honeymoon, etc. If you don't see the states you are interested in convo me. I have them all.

Condition: the maps are in great condition. The paper is not fragile and shows minimal age or wear. Considering the maps came out of a text book and it was obviously handled by kids, I'm amazed at the condition. The page measures about 7.5 x 10 inches and has a raw edge where it was attached to the book. This could be trimmed by the new owner or coverd by a mat.
