This is a fine example of an early 20th Century pocket map. The colorful and highly detailed map folds into original red paper covers tilted "Map of Oklahoma and Ind. Terr. The Powers Land & Loan Co. Lawton…" The titling is held within a Roman column, with additional marketing text on back cover. The map itself is a great land promotional piece that uses extensive overprinting in red to promote the virtues of the region, noting how many acres are to be sold. Around the map's margins: "Lawton has no Equal in the World…"; "Comanche County has more Springs and Timber Lined Streams…" and more. Printed on fine banknote-style paper. Index on verso lists towns and cites with population. A fine promotional map in remarkable condition.
