Color pictorial / pictographic map, decorative border, 22 x 30 1/4 inches on sheet 23 1/4 x 32 1/4 inches folding to 8 3/4 x 4 inch brochure; text, smaller color map and color cover illustration on verso. Tiny red ink marks at center of lower margin, extending into border; overall very good clean condition. The title, "Germany, The Beautiful Travel Country," appears in a banner on the lower right of the map. A border featuring the words "Beautiful Germany" surrounds the map, while the map itself is festooned with pictorial images of German cities, citizenry at work and play, animals, a zeppelin, persons in historic garb and, in Nürnburg, military figures marching beneath a swastika flag. Another Nazi banner figures in the image of Müchen. A hypnotically compelling map, alive with activity, but also steeped in foreboding through ominous images resonant of things to come. On verso is text pertaining to travel in Germany. The map is signed "Riemer." The text at the bottom margin of the back cover reads "Printed in Germany P - 636200 - e" Item #56463
