Scarce pictorial map of the Illinois, by the prolific illustrator Karl Smith.
The map is filled with historical vignettes, telling the story of Illinois's history.
Color vignette on upper left illustrating "Marquette and Jolliet the first white men to set Illinois 1673", and a decorative cartouche with the state seal at the lower left. Compass rose on lower right oriented with north toward the upper right.
Most of Smith's maps are scarce on the market.
