This is a lovely, large format map of Colorado at the end of the 19th century detailing land use with regards to economic output.
A key in the top right identifies land used throughout the state for various agricultural, logging, and mining practices. While topographic detail is omitted entirely the delineation of rivers and their tributaries provides a clear outline of the vast ranges that cover the western half of the state. Cities, towns, and the trails and railroads that connect them are show with clarity.
Condition: Map is in A condition with bright colors on clean paper with wide margins on all sides. Originally folded, the map has been flattened for framing purposes. Minor fold separations have been reinforced on the verso using archival material.
