Separations at left and right horizontal centrefold (4 1/2 and 1 1/2 inches), short separation at one fold end, light wear and toning, previous owner's name on cover, good condition. A scarce image by Ernest Dudley Chase, one of the first rank pictorial mapmakers of the 20th century. Rather loosely titled by Chase a pictorial map with the eagle emblem forming the background suggesting the United States. Army slang phrases are illustrated in humorous vignettes with a dictionary of the slang words provided in the Legend at upper edge. "You'll find it here all pictured out, The slang that's 'in the groove,' And helps to keep from morn to night, The ARMY ON THE MOVE!" All in red, white and blue with decorative border, this is a historically illuminating and decorative piece. Also issued as a single sided poster, this is the pamphlet edition, with humorous illustrations on the verso as well as a Glossary of Good Old Army Slang. The back cover advertises the "complete catalog of Chase Pictorial Maps" which can be requested. No copies of this are listed on WorldCat.
