This very large map emphasizes the new possessions of the United States during the Age of Imperialism following the Spanish-American War of 1898. This was a time when the United States was emerging as an imperialist world power in an attempt to protect its trade markets overseas. The map presents the United States with vividly colored states, each with its counties delineated and also brightly colored. Insets of the Philippine Islands, Alaska, Hawaii, Samoa, Guam, Howland and Baker Islands, Tutuila Island, Wake Island, Cuba and Puerto Rico are included. Folds into original dark brown cloth covers with title in gilt on front board.
