Stuart's Atlas of the State of Maine Including Statistics and Descriptions of its History, Educational system, Geology, Railroads, Natural Resources, Summer Resorts and Manufacturing Interests.
J.H. Stuart & Co. South Paris, Maine. 1902-03. - Folio volume 18.5 x 15 inches; 108 pages with handcolored maps on pages 20, 27-96 (single and double page tipped-in), and two additional unnumbered double-page color maps. The large folding map of the state (pp. 1-4) is MISSING. Joints are broken but still attached by cloth, spine has been clumsily repaired with heavy paper which has disintegrated over time. There is a 2.5 inch abraded area along the cover's top edge; corners are bumped. An approximately 1.5 by 2.25 inch irregularly shaped stain to the front cover has penetrated the first 22 pp of the volume (the text section), gradually becoming smaller as it soaked through the pages until it is no longer visible. It appears as a small light spot (.5 inch circle) on only one map (Rail Road Map of Maine with Watershed Map of Maine on verso). There is a very light line of dampstaining to the lower right edge of the first pages, not affecting any text or map. Several areas of the Rail Road Map are marked by red pencil check marks. There are two tiny (.5 x .25 inch) spots in the margin of the map of Oxford county (#71). Overall the maps are in very good condition, clean and bright, with hand coloring. Two attractive double page Gray maps are at the rear of the volume (New Map of the United States and New Map of the World in Hemispheres) followed by a Directory of significant "Business Firms and Professional Men" to be found in Maine. Overall, a desirable item at an attractive price with contents chiefly in very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
