Description

Scarce example of Ernest Dudley Chase's pictorial map of North America.

As noted by Rumsey:

Pictorial map of the North American continent, from Greenland in the north to Panama in the south. The map is filled with drawings of buildings, landmarks and wildlife. Along the right and left margins are vignette images of important buildings and scenic spots in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama and Cuba. In addition, on the map there are small pictographs featuring the attractions of the countries: Greenland, Iceland, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama. Geographical features include national boundaries, capitals, states and provinces, major cities, rivers and other large bodies of water. The map is decorated with a red, yellow and black compass rose and an Art Deco geometric border design.

The present map is one of Ernest Dudley Chase's scarcest works.
