Excellent oversized early 20th century color printed map. Not to be confused with their much more common small quarto size maps of this era. Excellent level of detail not possible on smaller maps.
Nice transitional map for any collector of the maps of this state. Likely a variant to many others around it given the rapid nature the firm updated their maps at this time.
Paper and image remains clean and well preserved with a fine patina and visual appeal.
Original fold line as issued.
