Page's Indexed Township Map of Montana, Showing Location of All Railroad Stations, Post-Offices and Villages in the State
Chicago: H.R. Page & Co, 1882. About very good.. Folding map, approximately 17 x 25.75 inches, plus [8]pp. index. Original printed card wrappers. Moderate edge wear and staining to wraps. Contemporary ownership annotations and some idle annotations on title-page, front pastedown, and final leaf verso. Minor wear along map folds, with a few very small losses and verso tape repairs at fold points. Light tanning. A rare, color printed folding map of territorial Montana, published in 1882 by H.R. Page & Co. in Chicago, seven years before statehood. The map is shaded in several different colors by county, and also identifies the general vicinity of several major Indian reservations. In addition, it delineates important guidelines for surveys of the territory and outlines the grid of some platted areas. The map also quite accurately depicts the locations of territorial towns and forts, stage routes and post offices, rivers, and the progress and projected route of the Northern Pacific Railroad, which at the date of publication had been completed to Miles City. Tipped to the card wrappers is a brief index of towns in the territory, their locations on the map grid, and populations, if known. This is the first edition of this map, which Page reissued several time through 1886. All are extremely scarce, but of the present work, OCLC locates only one copy, at Yale. One of the few separately issued maps of Montana as a territory.
