USCGS poster for Aeronautical Charts

Aeronautical Charts. Department of Commerce U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey Washington, D. C.

DESCRIPTION: Surprisingly scarce poster ca 1970s, originally published in 1959, advertising aeronautical charts sold by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey in Washington, D. C. A later re-issue published by the NOAA, National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration, National Ocean Service. At one time paper copies of the poster were available by order from the NOAA Distribution Branch but by 2013 products were only available in PDF or print-on-demand format.

A map dealer's dream meta-poster!

WorldCat contains only one record of the poster, at the University of Maryland. No example of the original 1959 poster are known to me.
