In 1916, a portfolio of nine major parks was published by the United States Dept of the Interior to generate interest in them. Printed on each brochure was a map showing the parks and principal railroad connections. There were 9 parks at the time and this is the complete original 1916 set with the Introduction/Contents leaflet by Franklin K Lane, Sec. of the Interior and Stephen T Mather who was Assistant to the Secretary in Charge of National Parks at the time, the portfolio itself printed on khaki canvas on paper and the 6" x 9" illustrated park brochures which are each 20 to 25 pages in length, the parks are Yellowstone, Yosemite, Sequoia, Mount Rainier, Crater Lake, Mesa Verde, Glacier, Rocky Mountain and the Grand Canyon.
Some of the booklets do show some old reddish stain from water which bled out reddish from the sepia toned photo prints but I separated all of the pages to make sure that none are stuck together or show surface paper loss, all are intact, well bound, odor free, no holes/tears. A fine historic National Park set for your collection. I was happy to find this set all complete with the portfolio.
