$400.00U-S--Coast-and-Geodetic-Survey1914-Inside-Route-Pilot-Key-West-to-New-OrleansVery scarce, intact 1914 Coast Pilot with six strip charts and sailing directions for what is now the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, from Key West, Florida heading north and then west to New Orleans, Louisiana. Published by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Contains 93 pages of text plus an index. <br><br/> In its early history some portions of the 'inside route' were owned and dredged by private entities who charged a toll to vessels for passage, sometimes by stringing a chain across narrow passages to restrict traffic flow. After 1919 Congress mandated that the entire passage should be turned over to the Federal government and the tolls were eliminated. <br><br/> The sailing directions for Bayou St. John describe a moment in time that New Orleans residents can only imagine today: <dir class="indenttextblock">The channel at the entrance is protected by training walls on each side. Spanish Fort is a pleasure resort at the mouth of Bayou St. John and is connected with New Orleans by an electric car line... Small craft of all kinds use the bayou as far as Esplanade Street, about 2 3/4 miles above the entrance, but pleasure boats rarely go above that point." </dir> Size of each chart when folded is approximately 8" x 5". The pilot's lithographed working navigational charts capture the full extent of the southern U.S. Inside Route in detail. Chart sections include roughly these areas and chart sizes: (fully opened, height is 10" and width is listed below). <br> 1. Key West to Matanzas Pass - 24"<br> 2. Matanzas Pass to Clearwater - 23"<br> 3. Clearwater to Tampa - 27"<br> 4. Tampa to St. Andrews Sound - 24"<br> 5. St. Andrews Sound to Bay St. Louis - 36"<br> 6.

Held, John Jr.
$200.00Held--John-Jr-Pictorial-Map-of-Lower-Manhattan-or-Broadway-Butterfly-s-MapJohn Held, Jr., (1889-1958) was a cartoonist, illustrator, printmaker and author. Held's cartoons satirized and epitomized the United States' “Jazz Age” of the 1920s. Here, Held's cartoon for "Broadway Butterflys" satirizes the fast life of the New York elite with its focus on Wall Street, Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and Park Avenue. Shows the Jefferson Market Night Court, now the Jefferson Market Branch of the New York Public Library and the morgue, "end of the Primrose Path." Presumably Held included the image to illustrate his story, “Broadway Butterfly,” in Held's second published collection of short stories, Dog Tales (1930). <br><br> Verso with an engraving by Held: "When the Theatre was Fraught with Romance." <br><br> Held was apparently a VERY popular cartoonist before the Depression. According to New York's Center Gallery: <div class="indenttextblocksingle">"He lived in the era of cartoonists as national heroes. In 1927, Vanity Fair named Held to its “Hall of Fame” alongside international luminaries of the decade. The Hearst newspapers paid him $250,000 a year (nearly $4,000,000 today, adjusted for inflation) for his cartoon strip, Oh! Margy, and his drawings sold for up to $5,000 each, roughly the price of a house." (1) </div><br> (1) Online. Retrieved December, 2022.

An untitled birds-eye view map of the Salt River Project by T.A. Hayden, centered near Phoenix, Arizona. Similar to, but covering a larger area, than a small format map of the region by Hayden from 1934, now housed at Arizona State University. <br><br> Blue-line print hand-colored and enhanced with small red paste-on stickers and larger, manuscript lettering for cities. Shows the rivers, dams, reservoirs, lakes, and canals . Particular interest is indicated for reservoirs and canals as they have been hand colored in white and bright blue respectively. <br></br> The beginning of federal production of electric power occurred on the Salt River Project when Congress, in 1906, authorized the Reclamation Service to develop and sell hydroelectric power from the project. The map is significant because it was updated in 1959 when the original name "Salt River Dam #1" was changed to the name in use today: Roosevelt Dam. <br></br> Coverage is bound to the west by Gila Bend and to the east by Superior, AZ. Northern coverage ends above Prescott, Arizona, and to the south the map extends as far as Casa Grande. <br></br> The map has an interesting orientation with North oriented about 35 degrees to the left and that with the birdseye perspective, the large size, and the township and range grid of the Public Lands Survey System all give the map a commanding appearance. <br></br> In the 1930's T.A.

Maps and notes for an unpublished fantasy novel The Fires of Truth
Roma, Cheryl L.
$450.00Roma--Cheryl-L-Maps-and-notes-for-an-unpublished-fantasy-novel-The-Fires-of-TruthLike a map we sold a few years ago, <a href="" target="_blank">A New Map of the World</a> by Andrew Zingg , some map creators are driven to lay down their vision of a world that existed only in their imagination. Such are the manuscript maps in the notebooks of author Cheryl L. Roma who labored for three years to write "The Fires of Truth." <br><br> While the fate of the unpublished manuscript for Roma's novel "The Fires of Truth" is unknown we are pleased to offer two small bound notebooks that contain manuscript maps for the imaginary world she conceived. Apparently written ca. 2001-2004, the maps are part of two notebooks (Book of the Ancient World and Book of the New Kingdom) that contain research notes on real-world topics such as military formations and terminology, folk healing and folk food, and the structure and organization of royal courts. <br><br> The bulk of the notebooks contain historical timelines and numerous details Roma would have used to structure the plot of the book which seems to have had religious overtones. These include a sketch of the Palace of Seven Hills, a table of distances between locations, larger scale maps of Heden's Meadow, Woodburn, Erland's Point, and Amber Hill.
