This large map is a scarce issue of New Mexico Territory by the little-known H.R. Page & Co. firm of Chicago. There are only 12 counties and incomplete surveys, with most settlement clustered in the Rio Grande valley and along the railways. It locates a large array of railroads, roads and trails, lakes and rivers. A rarely seen map that is a worthy addition to any serious New Mexico map collection.
