Description

Scarce vintage pictorial of Minnesota, focusing on the state's literary heritage. The map was published by the Minneapolis English Teachers Club in 1954.

"Drawings descriptive of books about Minnesota appear on this map. The numbers under the drawings correspond to the numbers before the authors' names in the list below. This list also includes authors whose works are not represented on the map. If the author was born in Minnesota the town of his (sic) birth appears in the parenthesis after the name."

The list of authors numbers 80, many (most?) of whom are women. The usual local celebrities are named (Sinclair Lewis, Charles Lindbergh), as well as less-known figures.
