Pictorial map San Joaquin Power Club Wishon Cove Camp
Clary, A. D.
$250.00Clary--A--D-Pictorial-map-San-Joaquin-Power-Club-Wishon-Cove-CampYou have heard about "Where's Waldo?" but on this map I ask: "Where's Killroy?" <br><br> An original post-WWII pictorial map of Wishon Cove Camp at Wishon Cove on Bass Lake in Crane Valley, California <b>featuring Killroy</b> (1). Subtitled "San Joaquin Power Club", apparently this camp was originally a private club for the San Joaquin Power Company. Today the camp is run by the Pacific Service Employees Association. <br><br> The map shows hikers, horse-back riders, dancers, hunters, boaters, Boy Scouts, fishermen, and swimmers, all enjoying themselves oudoors on what appears to be some steep slopes. McDougald's store is located next to the shoreline and red-roofed Sam's Place seems to be the local watering hole, surrounded by apartments, dormitories, and numerous outhouses. The camp was named after businessman Arthur Wishon. <br><br> Arthur Emory Wishon, often known as A. Emory Wishon, was a pioneering figure in the development of hydroelectric power in California, using Bass Lake water. He served as a chief engineer and later as a vice president for San Joaquin Light and Power Corporation. His work significantly contributed to the construction of multiple dams and power plants in the region. <br><br>

Electrotype Copy No. 5. (1) U.S.C.G.S. Chart No. 490. <br><br> (1) Electrotyping is a reprographic printmaking method that was especially important in the 19th century, as it allowed for high-quality, high-volume reproduction of texts and images. Electrotype printing involves creating a metal plate via electroplating for printing. The process starts by forming a mold of the original work with a soft material like wax. This mold is dusted with graphite powder for conductivity, then submerged in a copper sulfate solution. An electric current is applied, causing copper ions to deposit onto the mold. The process continues until a sufficient copper layer forms. The new copper shell or 'electrotype' is separated from the mold and its back is filled with a type metal like lead for strength. <br><br> After cooling, the electrotype is finished and trimmed for use. It is inked and pressed against paper to produce prints of the original plate. This process was significant in the 19th century for high-quality, high-volume reproduction.

Child's pencil box pictorial map United States
$125.00AnonymousChild-s-pencil-box-pictorial-map-United-StatesLithographed uncommon pictorial map ca. 1932 of the United States by the Joseph Dixon Crucible Company (DCC). Inset maps for the Philippine Islands, Alaska, Hawaiian Islands, Panama, and Porto Rico. Map interior is the standard cotton, cattle, and cactus and the seas are filled with the scene of a whaleboat capsized by its quarry, a fierce WWI-era battleship, a passenger liner, and a single-deck ship-of-the-line, possibly the Constitution. Following restoration that began in 1925, the Constitution sailed on a 90-port tour along United States' coasts by late 1931. <br><br> The DCC is also credited with the publication of Dixon's Mickey Mouse Map of the United States ca. 1936. That 10"x14" map was designed for inclusion in a set of child's pencils. <br><br> The Dixon Crucible Company was established by Joseph Dixon in Jersey City, NJ in 1847. Dixon (1799-1869) invented the Dixon Ticonderoga pencil, which was made by mixing graphite with clay and water and pressing it into grooved cedarwood. The company was taken over by Dixon's son-in-law, Orestes Cleveland, who established it as a highly regarded brand for mass production. The company suffered financial setbacks due to Cleveland's malfeasance, but it was saved by Edward F.C. Young and eventually came under the control of his son-in-law George T. Smith. The manufacturing complex was later converted into the Dixon Mills, a mixed-use apartment complex. In 2005, Dixon-Ticonderoga was acquired by the Italian-based FILA Group, a manufacturer in Mexico and China.

$550.00Gaffney--Walter-M-Pictorial-advertising-map-for-the-Cape-Cod-CreameryHistorical pictorial map for Cape Cod Creamery ca. 1933 by Walter M. Gaffney. An unrecorded advertising piece for Cape Cod Creamery, associated with Noble's milk. On heavy card stock. Maps numerous historical and geographic locations including Pilgrim Monument, the Highland Light, Pleasant Bay, the Sandy Neck Light, the Cape Cod Canal. Scattered in each corner is a logo for Noble's milk, the map shows several delivery trucks labeled "Noble's that's good milk", and the large compass rose with a bottle of milk arranged at the center. Small piece of contiguous card stock apparently fashioned into a print hanger suggests the piece may have been trimmed into this shape by a previous owner. <br><br> Includes Buzzards Bay, Duxbury Bay, Provincetown Harbor, Wellfleet Harbor, Barnstable Harbor, Pleasant Bay ,and a portion of Nantucket Sound. <br><br> <div class="indenttextblocksingle"> "Wellfleet or Whalefleet as it was originally called undoubtedly surpassed other towns. In 1843 a whale was captured near the end of the Cape and estimated to contain 200 barrels of oil and 2000 pounds of bone. Only 125 barrels of oil and 300 lbs. of bone were saved but with this waste it netted $10,000." </div> <br><br> Gaffney is also credited with a larger pictorial map of Cap Cod 1932, in a different style, less historically oriented.

$250.00National-CompanyMap-of-the-World-in-Azimuthal-Projection-Centered-on-Malden-Mass-USAScarce "Map of the World in Azimuthal Projection Centered on Malden, Mass USA". Presumed first edition lacking the more elaborate title cartouche found on the 2nd. No copies located in WorldCat. <br><br> Malden was home to the National Company, a heavyweight in the manufacturing of radio equipment. The legacy of this enterprise and the town's distinctive place in radio history were immortalized in a unique piece of advertising - this world map centered on this otherwise little-known Massachusetts town. <br><br> This ingeniously designed cartographic promotional material was part of a strategy tailored to captivate the attention of amateur radio enthusiasts. It underscored the awe-inspiring power of radio communication, visualizing the potential of the most potent transmitters of the time. One glance at this map made it crystal clear: with the right equipment, you could quite literally tap into the global conversation. <br><br> A feature that makes the azimuthal projection stand out among other cartographic methods is its fidelity to directions. Any line drawn from the center point to another location on the map accurately represents the real-world direction. This attribute, where all points appear radially symmetrical around the center, makes it an invaluable tool in aeronautical charts. <br><br>
