Map of the State of New Hampshire - NEW HAMPSHIRE) Shurtleff, Elizabeth (illus) - 1926. 
Elizabeth Shurtleff & Helen F. McMillin. Copyright 1926. - Color poster / pictorial map on sheet 34 x 23 1/2 inches, multiple folds as issued now mimimised by professional mounting on linen. Fold separations at upper centre and at right centre have been repaired with some unevenness of color where inpainted. Owing to the detail and bright coloration of the design this is not very noticeable. A very decorative pictorial map of New Hampshire by Elizabeth Shurtleff. The ornate scroll border at left and right is used to great effect in highlighting different seals associated with the state, its towns and colleges. The main body of the map is filled with little pictographs representing historical events and contemporary activities. The influence of MacDonald Gill's Wonderground map of London Town is apparent in the "speech bubbles" with short pithy sayings or quips emerging from the mouths of many of the characters. A beautifully designed map.
