$255.00Oberbacher--HansLido-di-Jesolo-beach-near-Venice-ItalyFine birds-eye view, "Lido di Jesolo", with Venice, Italy at the left. By Hans Oberbacher. 1958. <br><br> Lido di Jesolo, a popular seaside resort town, is situated within the metropolitan city of Venice, Italy. It is well known for its long sandy beach and vibrant nightlife, and it serves as a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer months. Lido di Jesolo is situated on the Adriatic coast close to Venice, making it a convenient location for visitors looking to enjoy both the beach and the historic city of Venice. <br><br> The region surrounding Jesolo has been featured in cartographic works dating back to the 14th century or earlier, crafted by renowned cartographers such as Pietro Vesconte, Fra Mauro, Benedetto Bordone, and Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, among others. These prior charts provide insight into the development of the Venetian Lagoon over time. <br><br> Jesolo has a history that dates back to ancient Roman times when it was known as Equilium, meaning "city of horses." The area was largely abandoned during the Middle Ages due to the decline of the Roman Empire and encroachment of the surrounding marshlands. <br><br> During the era of the Republic of Venice, which lasted from the 8th to the 18th century, the Venetians began to drain and reclaim the land for agriculture and fishing. The first settlements were established in the 19th century, and the town was renamed Cavazuccherina. <br><br> The opening of the first beach resort in 1911 marked the beginning of tourism in Lido di Jesolo. However, it was not until the post-World War II period that the town experienced a significant boom in tourism. During the 1950s and 1960s, rapid development and urbanization transformed Lido di Jesolo into one of the most popular seaside resorts in Italy.

The port and various ships are prominently featured, emphasizing San Francisco's role as a major port city connecting the U.S. to Asia. <br><br> The map includes various landmarks and geographic features of the San Francisco Bay Area, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, downtown San Francisco skyscrapers, boats in the bay, and the hilly terrain. However, the proportions and layouts are not geographically accurate. <br><br> Interestingly, the hills and mountains are rendered in a colorful, undulating style reminiscent of Japanese ukiyo-e landscape prints. This gives the map a unique artistic interpretation blending American and Japanese aesthetics. The whimsical, simplified style seems designed to engage and orient viewers while capturing the general character of the Bay Area. <br><br> Published by the Port of San Francisco in 1984.

Apparently scarce; only three examples found in WorldCat, all in New Zealand institutions. <br><br> Drawn by Alan Stuart Patterson. Published by A.H. Reed and A.W. Reed.

The first known European to sight New Zealand was Dutch navigator Abel Tasman in 1642, but it was not until the voyages of British explorer James Cook in the late 1760s and 1770s that the islands were mapped and more extensively explored. Following Cook's journeys, whalers, sealers, and traders started to visit New Zealand, establishing contact with the indigenous Māori people. <br><br> The early interactions between European settlers and Māori were characterized by a mix of cooperation, trade, and conflict. Many Māori initially welcomed the newcomers, as they brought new technologies, such as muskets and metal tools, which the Māori quickly adapted for their own purposes. However, the increasing European presence also led to disputes over land, resources, and cultural misunderstandings. The introduction of European diseases, to which the Māori had no immunity, also had a devastating impact on the indigenous population. <br><br>

The map highlights local parks and recreational activities including scuba diving, golf, fishing, sailing, and surfing. <br><br> Maui, the second-largest island in Hawaii, has a rich history dating back to ancient Polynesian settlers. The island was first settled by Polynesians who navigated the Pacific Ocean using the stars, arriving in Hawaii around 400-800 AD. These early settlers developed a complex society with a strict social hierarchy and a subsistence economy based on fishing and agriculture. <br><br> In the late 18th century, European explorers arrived in Hawaii, with Captain James Cook being the first recorded European to visit Maui in 1778. The island later became a center for the whaling industry and a popular port for ships traveling between North America and Asia. <br><br> Lahaina, located on the west coast of Maui, was once the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom in the early 19th century. It was also a major whaling port and a center of commerce. Today, Lahaina is a popular tourist destination known for its historic buildings, art galleries, and restaurants. <br><br> Kapalua, situated on the northwest coast of Maui, was once a plantation growing pineapples and coffee. In the 1970s, the area was transformed into a resort destination featuring world-class golf courses, luxurious accommodations, and pristine beaches. <br><br> Haleakala, a massive shield volcano that forms the eastern portion of Maui, is a significant feature of the island. The volcano's crater is a popular destination for hiking, stargazing, and watching the sunrise. In 1916, Haleakala National Park was established to protect the unique volcanic landscape and the endemic species that inhabit the area. <br><br>

By 1926, however, the city had long passed its heyday and was in a state of decline.

LOC:89
$225.00Appleton--LeRoy-H-New-Deal-allegorical-pictorial-map-Federal-Water-ShedA stunningly-executed allegorical persuasive map on the subject of the New Deal by LeRoy Appleton. The intent of the map was to argue against FDR's New Deal policies. <br><br> The New Deal was a series of economic programs and reforms implemented by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the United States during the 1930s in response to the Great Depression. It aimed to provide relief, recovery, and reform to address the severe economic crisis and high unemployment rates of that time. It was implemented between 1933 and 1939. <br><br> Appleton uses water as a symbol to represent money, with rivers and wells as sources of that money later stored behind a dam, a symbol for the "reservoir of revenue." <br><br> Other allegorical imagery was used during that era to explain specific New Deal programs. For example, the symbol of the "Three Little Pigs" was employed to illustrate the different types of economic recovery measures. The first pig represented the ineffective, weak measures of the past, while the second pig symbolized temporary relief efforts. The third pig, who built his house with sturdy bricks, represented the New Deal programs that aimed to provide long-term economic stability and reform. By employing such storytelling devices, FDR and his administration aimed to create a sense of unity, hope, and support for the New Deal programs among the American people. Found in an issue of Fortune Magazine in 1935.<br>

Inset maps for the Philippine Islands, Alaska, Hawaiian Islands, Panama, and Porto Rico. Map interior is the standard cotton, cattle, and cactus and the seas are filled with the scene of a whaleboat capsized by its quarry, a fierce WWI-era battleship, a passenger liner, and a single-deck ship-of-the-line, possibly the Constitution. Following restoration that began in 1925, the Constitution sailed on a 90-port tour along United States' coasts by late 1931. <br><br> The DCC is also credited with the publication of Dixon's Mickey Mouse Map of the United States ca. 1936. That 10"x14" map was designed for inclusion in a set of child's pencils. <br><br> The Dixon Crucible Company was established by Joseph Dixon in Jersey City, NJ in 1847. Dixon (1799-1869) invented the Dixon Ticonderoga pencil, which was made by mixing graphite with clay and water and pressing it into grooved cedarwood. The company was taken over by Dixon's son-in-law, Orestes Cleveland, who established it as a highly regarded brand for mass production. The company suffered financial setbacks due to Cleveland's malfeasance, but it was saved by Edward F.C. Young and eventually came under the control of his son-in-law George T. Smith. The manufacturing complex was later converted into the Dixon Mills, a mixed-use apartment complex. In 2005, Dixon-Ticonderoga was acquired by the Italian-based FILA Group, a manufacturer in Mexico and China.

It is a tributary of the Sacramento River and is known for its scenic beauty, recreational opportunities, and historic significance. <br><br> During the California Gold Rush of the mid-19th century, the Feather River became an important source of gold. Miners used hydraulic mining techniques to extract gold from the riverbed, which caused significant environmental damage and siltation of the river. The discovery of gold in the Feather River contributed to the growth of several nearby towns, including Oroville and Marysville. <br><br> In the early 20th century, the Feather River became a focal point of water development projects aimed at supplying water to the growing population and agricultural needs of California. The Oroville Dam, completed in 1968, is the tallest dam in the United States and forms Lake Oroville, a major reservoir that stores water from the Feather River.

This map was a promotional item created by Rand McNally to advertise their line of maps and atlases. <br><br> The Wild Bill Hickok Treasure Map was a colorful and fanciful depiction of the American West, with illustrations of cowboys, Indians, and other Wild West icons.

There are several legends surrounding him, including a supposed treasure map that he left behind. According to the legend, Hickok buried a treasure he won in a poker game, gold and other valuables, in the Black Hills of South Dakota before his death in 1876. He allegedly entrusted a treasure map to a friend, but the exact location of the treasure and the authenticity of the map are both widely disputed.

Bernice Walkley Porter, a Vassar graduate, is credited with creating a map "About and Roundabout Tucson" in 1936 (1). Though untitled, the map here is apparently Porter's and was issued as an folded untitled insert in a guide book by the same name that was published by the Junior League of Tucson in 1936. Verso with a road map of the state of Arionna. <br><br> During the 1930s, Bernice Walkley and Rutger Porter operated Desert Gardens Nursery on the same property as their small adobe house in Tucson. Rutger's love for desert plants earned him the nickname "Kactus Kid". Together Bernice and Rutger expanded their home and created the garden surrounding it. Over the years, their garden evolved into a beautiful oasis of winding walks, adobe walls, fountains, and greenery that reflected the sturdier choices for the Tucson climate. <br><br> The Porters closed their Desert Gardens Nursery in 1958. However, Bernice had a dream of turning their beloved property into a public garden, and donated it to the City of Tucson in 1968. By the early 1970s, the Tucson Botanical Gardens and the Porter property became a reality, with the City passing a resolution to develop the property into a horticultural center, sanctuary for wild birds, and a center for education. The Porter's adobe house now serves as the Gift Shop for the Tucson Botanical Garden <br><br> Many of the original plants from the Porter estate, including citrus, roses, privet, and jasmine, are still preserved in the Historical Garden, which represents the oasis style typical of large Tucson gardens dating from the 1920s to the mid-1960s. <br><br> (1) Griffin, Dori. Mapping Wonderlands: Illustrated Cartography of Arizona, 1912–1962. United States, University of Arizona Press, 2013. p. 192.

The trolley line had a station at the base of the mountain, and visitors could take a funicular railway up Mount Tom. Once at the top of Mount Tom, visitors could enjoy a range of activities, including hiking, picnicking, and even a zoo.

LOC:89
$200.00Held--John-Jr-Pictorial-Map-of-Lower-Manhattan-or-Broadway-Butterfly-s-MapJohn Held, Jr., (1889-1958) was a cartoonist, illustrator, printmaker and author. Held's cartoons satirized and epitomized the United States' “Jazz Age” of the 1920s. Here, Held's cartoon for "Broadway Butterflys" satirizes the fast life of the New York elite with its focus on Wall Street, Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and Park Avenue. Shows the Jefferson Market Night Court, now the Jefferson Market Branch of the New York Public Library and the morgue, "end of the Primrose Path." Presumably Held included the image to illustrate his story, “Broadway Butterfly,” in Held's second published collection of short stories, Dog Tales (1930). <br><br> Verso with an engraving by Held: "When the Theatre was Fraught with Romance." <br><br> Held was apparently a VERY popular cartoonist before the Depression. According to New York's Center Gallery: <div class="indenttextblocksingle">"He lived in the era of cartoonists as national heroes. In 1927, Vanity Fair named Held to its “Hall of Fame” alongside international luminaries of the decade. The Hearst newspapers paid him $250,000 a year (nearly $4,000,000 today, adjusted for inflation) for his cartoon strip, Oh! Margy, and his drawings sold for up to $5,000 each, roughly the price of a house." (1) </div><br> (1) Online. Retrieved December, 2022. https://www.centergallerynyc.org/exhibitions/johnheldjr

This pictorial map documents Blackfoot Glacier, Harrison Glacier, Pumpelly Glacier, Sperry Glacier, Red Eagle Glacier, Carter Glacier, Dixon Glacier, Sexton Glacier Grinnell Glacier, Ahern Glacier, and Iceberg Lake (1). <br><br> Glacier National Park in 1925 was a popular destination for tourists who were seeking adventure, breathtaking scenery, and a chance to experience the great outdoors- hiking, by pack train, or by car. The Going-to-the-Sun Road was completed in 1932, but construction began in 1919. In 1925, visitors could drive part of the road, which offered stunning views of the park's glaciers, mountains, and valleys. <br><br> The Many Glacier Hotel was completed in 1915, but it underwent extensive renovations in the early 1920s. By 1925 the hotel had been transformed into a luxurious mountain retreat with modern amenities such as electricity, running water, and telephones. <br><br> Around 1873 Joe Scheuerle, moved to Ohio, where he eventually studied at the Cincinnati Art Academy. Best known for his portraits of Native Americans, beginning in 1909, Scheuerle made many visits to Indian reservations in Montana and across the West. He produced "more than 200 exceptional portraits of native American's" (2). One need only look at the title cartouche to understand that Scheurle's portraits greatly influenced this map. <br><br>

It superimposes the image of a human with red veins and capillaries over a map of the United States. This cover image crosses several collecting categories- medicine, cartography, advertising, and quackery. <br></br> The ad, from 1897, comprises the cover of vol. 2 no. 3 of "The Frog", a pamphlet targeted at druggists and proprietors of soda fountains. The "Red Blood Frog" edition of "The Frog", printed entirely in red ink, was published in 1897 by Hance Brothers & White, pharmaceutical chemists, a manufacturer of other cure-all remedies including "Frog in your Throat" lozenges. Philadelphia. Dated within at 1897. <br></br> The cover and content of the Red Blood Frog issue was part of a advertising campaign by Hance Brothers & White to promote their line of "blood making goods". These product included sarsaparilla, beef wine and iron, <strong>coca wine</strong>, and elixir celery compound. Wholesale purchasers could even re-brand the product by purchasing custom printed product labels (all in red ink) bearing their own trade information. <br></br> By 1906 Congress moved to restrict quack cures like those promoted in this Red Blood Frog edition by passing the Pure Food and Drug Act, which prohibited transportation of impure or contaminated food and drugs in interstate commerce and required truthful product labeling.

A derivative edition of a classic pictorial "humorous" map with more than a whiff of the intolerance that some believe permeates the state of Texas today. Tablecloth-sized map of the United States on Indian Head cloth [1] based on a design copyrighted by J.H. Withers in 1947 and branded with the imprint of Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. <br></br> Wither's distinctive design elements include a revised shape for Texas which extends to the west coast to provide Texas with a space for a "future seaport" and the appellation "damm' Yankee territory" for most of the northeast U.S.A. <br></br> The Catalog of Copyright Entries for 1947 records a copyright for "A Texan's Map of U.S.A.", held by James Harlan Withers of San Angelo, Texas. Wither's 1947 pictorial map is the earliest documented example of a genre of pictorial map with many derivative versions that begin with the fact that Texas was, at the time, the largest state in the U.S. and extend that simple premise to exaggerate the importance and quality of the state of Texas over the every other state in the U.S.A. <br></br> Early 50's date is supported by the fact that neither Alaska nor Hawaii, which both attained statehood in 1959, are mentioned on the map. <br></br> [1] Indian Head cloth was not manufactured after 1962. Indian Head Cloth Permanent Finish Sanforized stamping on a single line is associated with cloth produced from the late 1940s to early 1950s.
