Route of the Mormon Pioneers from Nauvoo to Great Salt Lake
New Wilson Hotel, Salt Lake City, 1903. Fold-out pamphlet [21.5 cm x 10.5 cm] that contains a pictorial map [21.5 cm x 75.5 cm] and descriptions of Salt Lake, Utah and the Mormons on the reverse. Folds as issued. Minor dampstaining and age toning to the New Wilson Hotel "cover." This is the smaller New Wilson Hotel version, of this lovely route map. Captivating map of the Mormon Trail from Nauvoo, Illinois, to the Great Salt Lake, which depicts the physical features of the countryside, the mountains, rivers, waterfalls, trees, etc. Also, wagons and trekkers on the trail, Indian encampments, buffalo, and more. A truly marvelous depiction of one of the great episodes in American history, produced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the journey. This detailed image was produced with the aid of Apostle Franklin D. Richards, the church historian, in 1899. Uncommon.
