Description

Gorgeous large format railroad map of Iowa, hand colored by counties. The Asher & Adams series of maps tends to be more interesting as the dates get later, as significant new railroad and other information was added each year.

Shows railroads, towns, rivers, lakes, mountains, township surveys,etc. Asher & Adams Atlas was conceived as a Railroad Atlas, but is probably most notable for its relatively unique style and excellent large format treatment of the states west of the Mississippi.
