(Colorado) Topographical Map of the State of Colorado.
Serving on the survey crew of George Wheeler, Louis Nell had the first hand opportunity to review the West, mile by mile, when it was still primitive. After his duties came to an end, he chose to settle in Colorado, got married and began publishing high quality maps of his adopted home state. You can almost immediately recognize his fine, precise style from his work under Wheeler,and this detailed map of Colorado bears that same trait. This 1895 map of the state is the unparalleled superior reference, and is in good condition with only a few minor separations at the corner folds and some light sporadic staining. Hard cover guide is likewise very good.
Condition very good, complete in original hard covers. Original hand color is strong. Image size is approximately 30.5 x 39.5 (inches),
