New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1921. First edition. VG. Large folio. 20 hand colored maps, each one on two pages. With a Sanborn promotional booklet dated 1940. The Sanborn maps provide amazing detail of any town they represent. The scale of this map, typical of most of the maps I have seen, is 50' to the inch. There is a legend on the title page which indicates the construction make-up of individual buildings; i.e., yellow indicates frame, red indicates brick, blue indicates stone, gray indicates iron and brown indicates the structure is fire-proof. This volume shows quite a bit of wear to the leather edge covering on the spine. The boards are original and have "Shippensburg" in black. The plates are very clean, bright, and complete. These maps have always been scarce in that they were produced in very small numbers.

Price: $1,200.00
