1948 (published) Denver, Colorado Dimensions:
20 x 16 inches (50.8 x 40.6 cm)
A wonderfully vivid pictorial map, printed by Richardson Rome within his own print shop in Estes Park. Renowned for his etchings of famous landmarks throughout the United States, he created a small number of maps of the Rocky Mountain National Park, with all the various locales throughout the park painstakingly detailed.
Inset within the map is artistically rendered Grand Lake, as well as the “Beautiful Dream Lake”. The artist’s love and care for the locale is well-apparent with the humor he puts into every nook and cranny. Look to the top of the map for a “Wet Cloud Waiting for a Picnic” or to the middle for the “Most Perfect Glacial Moraine in the World”.Condition:
This map is in an A condition with full margins and no tears or holes along the original folds.
