This map of Colorado, issued by the Game and Fish Department, shows all state game refuges in red shaded areas, as well as fish hatcheries located by red stars. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this map, however, are notations made by a previous owner indicating which refuges were opened in 1938 and others that were closed in that same year. Additional information includes an index to the larger cities in the state, county boundaries, roads and railroads.


Condition: B

Outside of the ink and pencil notations made by a previous owner, the map is in very good condition with some minor soiling and a damp stain in the lower blank margin. Backed with linen.

Estimate: $150 - $200
