(North America- United States- Massachusetts- Tourism Pamphlet & Map for the Hotel Rexford)
Printed 1899, Boston by Hotel Rexford
Engraved & lithographed by Geo. H. Walker & Co.
Original folding color lithographed advertising map. Separately issued by this specific hotel late in the 19th century. Overprinted in red to state there are 40 baths, the rates, subway & elevated line routes, etc. Undoubtedly scarce thus.
A detailed, scarce and interesting map which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In mostly clean nice antiquarian condition, paper sturdy, light minor age dustiness or light surface wear, small scattered spotting or age soiling at left side as seen, original fold-lines as issued, overall the map is clean and very attractive. On the back is extensive advertising for the hotel which takes up every single panel.
