1911 Engraved Color Map:
This color map of Alaska was included in an encyclopedia set published in 1911. It was engraved and printed by the LL Poates Co., NY, NY. The map shows a good deal of topographic detail; including major rivers, mountains, and islands. It locates the following natural resource locations: Gold Placers; Gold and Silver Lodes; Coal; and Petroleum. There weren't too awfully many cities and towns in Alaska Territory, but the ones that were there are shown on the map. Major railroads are shown in red (there aren't too many!)
The map is printed on medium weight paper, blank on the reverse and with a fold in the center (as issued). Bordered map area is about 8.5" x 10.5" with margins of between 1/2" to 1 inch all the way around to allow convenient matting. This is a very attractive older map and would look beautiful- matted and framed. If you want a detailed map showing the Alaska Territory as it was 100 years ago, this is a good one.Map is shown below without full margins; and the second image below is a close-up of the area around Seward and is included to show quality and detail. -- Returnable for any reason within 10 days for prompt refund.
