Scarce 1959 edition of Ernest Dudley Chase's stamp map, published for the Philatelic Institute.
The map includes images of US Postage stamps arrayed across the states, many placed thematically based upon the places to which they correspond historically.
A large inset of Alaska includes a star with a note "place stamp here."
Other historical vignettes around the map depict famous events and persons in American History.
This state of the map is very rare on the market.
