  • The Pictorial Map United States Stamps designed, drawn and published by...

    Out of the numerous pictorial mapmakers that were creating their work in the early 20th century, the work of Ernest Dudley Chase stands uniquely. After a successful career in the greeting card business, the retired Chase picked up cartography and began working on informational but decorative maps. This thematic map for American stamps is a good example. This basic map is full of vignettes and includes places where significant stamps can be affixed. Someone has started collecting on this map and has pasted down a dozen or so required stamps

    Condition is fair with some scuffing, old repairs and light dampstaining. Image size 21 x 36 (inches).
