Original printed wrappers. Some light soiling, pale marginal stain; map with a few small separations along folds. Item #403729

FIRST EDITION, published by the Burlington Route. A very similar promotional pamphlet to that also containing the map and titled "Sourth-Western Nebraska, and North-Western Kansas." "Karrow [for the map] shows editions of 1883,1885, and 1887 as well as this issue. This map is similar to the 1880 Map of Nebraska by Herman Smith, also published by the State Journal Company, but the title has been moved to the upper right corner to allow coverage of north eastern Colorado and the Burlington Railroad route to Denver. This map was also issued by the Burlington Railroad in 1886 and 1887 as part of their route promotion (Karrow 12-0574 and 12-0591). Compared to the 1880 map, there is much new development of railroads and the northwestern corner of the state" (Rumsey; Karrow 12-0581).

Price: $1,000.00
