    This very detailed map depicts the extent of development in the state, which had been almost entirely surveyed at this point with the exception of some areas in Lake, Grant and Baker counties. Shows cities, towns, roads, railroads, Indian reservations and topography via hachure. Folds into brown, cloth-covered boards with gilt title on front cover (4 x 6"). Joseph Kaye Gill owned an office supply company specializing in books and school supplies based in Portland. He published only a handful of maps focused on Oregon and Washington. The company, however, existed until 1999 when it was forced to close due to competition.

Condition Description: Overall very good with a few spots and slight discoloration where the map was adhered to the back cover. Covers show light wear with a small tear along the spine at top.
