Alva Scott Garfield designed, drew and published colorful pictorial maps of New England during the 1950s and 1960s. Based in Madison, New Hampshire, and Concord, Massachusetts, Garfield produced maps that were connected to nearby areas rich in historical interest: Boston, the Harvard University campus, Concord, Salem and the White Mountains. The maps are historically oriented and annotated throughout with facts and quotations from important historical figures. Events related to colonial history and the American Revolution are frequently highlighted. Important buildings are drawn in bird’s-eye style. Garfield’s maps include whimsical touches such as mermaids in the waters and decorative borders related to the locale. The maps in our inventory were recently rediscovered in a warehouse in New Hampshire, accounting for their very good uncirculated condition.
Condition: Generally fine with only minor overall toning and wear.
