Scenic and Historic State of Illinois
Rand McNally & Co.
55. 8 86. 3 cm (22 x 34 in)
Pictorial map of the state of Illinois with illustrated vignettes corresponding to important monuments and historical sites. Among our favorite scenes are the state parks, including Giant City State Park with a trio of giants lifting boulders, and a towering, angelic Abraham Lincoln over Springfield. The depiction of Chicago ("Wonder City of the World") is especially elaborate, with old Soldier Field, Wrigley, skyscrapers, and an industrial west side.
Folding map; soft folds. A few marginal chips.
