PLEASE NOTE: In a single place on the bottom margin of the paper (not on the image of the map itself) is a very slight wave of the paper. It does not extend into the image of the map itself. I'm sure it's due to the fact it was in a text book and was handled. Also, of course, it's vintage...so these things are to be expected. It's so slight the scanner would not pick it up. If you are going to mat and frame the map it's a moot point.

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. 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. I have them all.

Condition: Please note: The scan showing the cream colored border gives the appearance the paper has yellowed. That is not true in reality. It is true cream and not yellow. It is not a dull color, but bright. In general 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 maps each measure about 7.5 x 10 inches and have a raw edge where they were attached to the book. This could be trimmed by the new owner or coverd by a mat.
