This is a very attractive 1959 issue map of St Louis and vicinity by the H M Gousha Co as published in an encyclopedia.

The H.M. Gousha Company was one of the "Big Three" major producers of road maps and atlases in the United States during the 25 years following World War II. The H M Gousha Map Company was acquired by the Times Mirror Company in 1961, and then Simon & Schuster in 1987. Finally, the company was purchased by Rand McNally in 1996. Its production facility in Texas was closed and virtually all workers laid off. The Gousha artwork became part of the Rand McNally archive, and much of the company's archives were turned over to the Newberry Library.

This map measures 7.5 x 10 inches and there’s text on the reverse side. The paper is in excellent condition.

Mailed to you in a non-bendable mailer, carefully housed in an acid-free archival sleeve.
