Rare two-sheet map of Jasper National Park, showing the northern and southern half of the park in Canada's Alberta Province. This beautiful Rocky Mountain park is shown in fine detail in surveyed areas, although the remote center of the park still has yet to be thoroughly mapped. Geographical information is beautifully rendered and extensive.
The sheets each include two insets, one showing the variations of the compass within the park, and the other showing the location of the park within the greater Rocky Mountain and Pacific Northwest area, extending into the United States.
The maps include some overlapping territory, with Medicine Lake and the northern half of Maligne Lake shown on both maps. More detail is shown on the slightly later southern half of the map.
The northern half of the map was issued by the Canada Department of Mines in 1939. It corrects an earlier edition, from 1934. The southern half was issued in 1942, correcting an edition from 1936.
