Note:
4 inset city maps and a War Dept. Weather Map. This is Watson's Western States Map in a new configuration with city plans - in order to make it a companion to the Railroad and County Map of the U.S. and Canada, which came with it, also dissected, with "United States" on the covers (see #2540.000); this map has "Territories" on the cover. Above the title is an explanation of the "American System of Weather Signals." The Chicago map shows the Burnt District in red. Lots of useful text spread around, in the classic Watson manner.
