A bright, whimsical chromolithographed map of the United States, designed for a children's game, but wonderful in its own right.
The principal cities of the US are depicted, as are natural resources or landmarks. Texas is shown with Indians chasing a large herd of buffalo. California is dominated by scenes of Yosemite. Also, at the bottom left is a large view of 4 Indians, with rifles, looking down anxiously at a train passing through a mountain pass. At the top right is a view of the Statue of Liberty.
The game went through several revisions between 1881 and 1890.
Segmented and laid on linen. Restoration in blank margins and along several folds.
