I just love this little gem. It's an original vintage map from a 1931 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 teal, black and cream and would make a nice graphic statement if matted and framed. It would also be useful for altered art projects. I think 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.
PLEASE NOTE: This is only the 3rd set of this series I've been able to find in 3-4 years. They are fairly uncommon to run across. The condition of this 80-year-old map is exceptional. The paper is heavy and remains strong. It is not brittle or torn in any area and can be handled normally without concern. There is light tanning of the paper on the margin around the map. It is a little darker in tone toward the edges of the paper which is also normal as those edges saw more light over the years. If you are going to frame the map the margin will be covered with a mat. The teal green and black have also aged to nice mellow shades. Considering the maps came out of a text book and were obviously handled by kids, their condition is pretty amazing. The page measures about 7.5 x 10 inches. The map measures about 6 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches.
