This fine print reproduction by Ira Moss is both pleasing to the eye and loaded with information regarding Game and Wildlife in the United States during the 1950s.
To help dissect the map, an index key at lower left lists coordinates for every national forest, represented by pine trees throughout. Fifty-five game animals listed in black and sixty-eight birds listed in red are also included in the key with an identifiable number that corresponds to the map. Surrounding the map are boxed inset maps of every game animal listed, showing their habitat within the continental United States.
For several bird species the inset map will indicate through shading their locations during the summer and winter months. Surrounding the entire map, a detail that’s easy to miss, but worth noting, is a thin border of Canadian Geese in flight.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
