This handsome map of the Show Me State was commissioned by the Missouri State Highway Commission. Based on an original painting by Arthur P. Moody, it renders the state's highways, parks, and cities in an earthy and autumnal palette. Descriptive text and black and white photographs of the state's many attractions surround the map and appear on verso. "A Century of Progress Issue Commemorating the 1933 Chicago Exposition."
Issued folding, now flat, with minor toning along several of the folds and some separations along the folds that have been repaired on verso with archival materials, with small losses at fold intersections.
