Das Fröhliche Rheinland in Wort und Bild.

Von Endt, Rudolf (illus).
Bad Godesberg (Bonn) Germany. Landesverkehrsverband. 1937.
Folded color pictorial map, 8 1/4 x 4 inches, unfolding to an impressive 31 1/4 x 16 1/2 inches. The map depicts cities and towns, historical figures, crops and industry, with particular emphasis on a product the region is famous for; specifically, wine. The Rhine is central to the map, flowing from top to bottom, surrounded by lush countryside and urban centers. Descriptive text (in German) on verso, with two color vignette illustrations. An unusual and visually engaging map from the late 30s--one that belies the Depression that ravaged Europe as well as America and that was accompanied by, in Europe, the rise of fascism. An uncommon item in very good clean condition. Item #52932
