Chicago. George Cram. 1907.
Atlas, 15 x 12 inches, 160 pages featuring brightly colored folded map of Kansas opening to 32" x 51 1/2" (3'8" x 4'3 1/2"). Maps at beginning of Atlas include single page North Polar Regions and double page Map of the World and Map of North America. It should be noted that the all the double page maps are not congruent; many impose a white margin on the binding edge of each map, creating an offensive divide between the two portions. This unfortunate practice is carried through many of the double page United States Maps. The list of maps that follows indicate state or city maps that are either single page or tipped-in, avoiding the egregious gap between the two segments: Maine, Connecticut, Virginia, Maryland & Delaware, West Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Arkansas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, California, Montana, Utah, Oregon, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Souix City, Council Bluffs, St. Paul, Omaha. Text at rear is a potpourri: focus on Departments of Government, Presidents, Photographic Scenes from Around the World, and three maps of Kansas focusing on Manufacture, Farming, and Livestock in each of the state's counties. A seven page Index of Kansas concludes the Atlas, which is in very good clean condition and is distinguished by the remarkable folded map attached to rear cover. Item #55219
