“Illinois.” From Rand, McNally & Co.’s Indexed Atlas of the World. Chicago: Rand, McNally & Co., 1908. 26 x 19. Cerograph with printed color. Very good condition.
An original 1908 map of Illinois. By the early 20th century, the Rand, McNally & Co. firm from Chicago had established itself as one of the world’s premier cartographic publishers. Their maps were known for their copious yet clear detail and this map is no exception. Detail is impressive and includes depictions of the many railroads in the state, identified in a key at bottom left.
