Highways of Colorado Official Guide and Tour Book

Denver, Colorado: Clason Map Co., 1912. Copyrighted 1912. Highways of Colorado Official Guide Book and Tour Guide, Clason Map Co., Published under the authority of the Colorado State Highway Commission, 1912. 16pp. ads at front plus 16pp at back of booklet. 192pp. Oblong 11.75 x 4 inches.

Tan pictorial wrappers with light edge wear and soiling. Green book tape used to reinforce front and back gutters; binding remains tight. Interior clean.

Classic early 20th century bound strip map guide to Colorado. The Clason Map Co. would market these maps to car dealers and hotels selling them "publishing" rights on the front wrappers. In our case, the map was "published" by the Auto Equipment Co. of Denver. Typical strip maps are on left with mileage guides, road conditions and narrative description for each route shown opposite. Some ads interspersed. Usually, the binding has expired on these productions. A wonderful relic of early automobile touring and in better condition than often seen. Item #43
