SOLD: Wonderful 1936 pictorial map of the United States
[Title on Cover] America
78.3 x 65.3 cm (30.8 x 25.7 in)
This full-color pictorial map of the United States is filled with charming vignettes and figures. Both tourist destinations and local resources are highlighted, including: Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, and the Alamo, among many others. A large table of distances from New York, Boston, Montreal and Norfolk to points west fills the Atlantic Ocean.
While the map is completely in English, the highly illustrated verso contains German text - clearly designed to draw a German audience to America, which became a much shorter journey with the advent of commercial aviation.
A colorful example, issued folding, with several tiny splits at fold intersections as is commonly seen.
