Description

Gorgeous large format railroad map, hand colored by counties.

Shows railroads, towns, rivers, lakes, mountains, township surveys,etc. Asher & Adams Atlas was conceived as a Railroad Atlas, but is probably most notable for its relatively unique style and excellent large format treatment of the states west of the Mississippi. Small fold split at the bottom, repaired.
