This is a fine print reproduction of a joyful little pictorial map of Arizona by George Avey. The original map was produced as "a friendly guide for the traveler in the land of sunshine and scenic grandeur," as noted on the front.

The map is filled with colorful scenes of people enjoying a wide variety of outdoor activities throughout the state. Major highways and roads that interconnect the state are delineated in red. Though the map focuses on Arizona, attention is also given to places just across the border on all sides.

On the verso of the original was detailed text pertaining to the History of Arizona, of which topics include "Pre-Historic," "the Spanish Conquest," "Early Settlers," "When Men Were Men," and "Arizona Today." The other half of the verso describes in detail nearly 60 attractions throughout the state.

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.
