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 1896 map of the state is the unparalleled superior reference.
Very good condition with only a few minor separations at the corner folds. Hard cover guide is likewise very good. Image size is 31 x 40 (inches), bold original hand color.
