Decorative map of Nevada, published for the Nevada Department of Highways and drawn by map illustrator Gerald Eddy.
Eddy is perhaps best known for his maps of Lake Tahoe, which is also shown on this map.
The map provides a fine topographical image of Nevada, including lakes, rivers, mountains, deserts, snow covered peaks, etc. The primary focus of the map is to locate highways and points of interest.
A fine example of this scarce map.
Gerald Allen Eddy moved from Michigan to Southern California in 1902.
From the 1920s, he worked in the Los Angeles area as an artist and commercial cartographer.
Eddy produced a number of pictorial and other maps of the western part of the United States. His earliest work was "Pushing Hun out of Franc eand Belgium" (1918). He produced several other war related maps during WWII, but is best known for his tourist and pictorial maps of California, Nevada and Arizona, including his "The Heart of Arizona" in 1926 and Boulder Dam map of 1931 and his iconic series of maps of Lake Tahoe.
