Nice, tight copy of this atlas crucial for motoring or touring in your rumble-seated roadster in an era when being able to find proper paved roads was important -- which also explains its surprising scarcity, for such volumes went on the road and were used to death. Subtitle explains it all: "Sectional Road Maps Covering the Entire United States and Lower Canada -- Complete Series of State Maps in Colors for Commercial Reference -- A Double Page United States Map Showing Main Transcontinental Highways -- Logs, Transcontinental Federal Highways -- Map and Information Concerning Air Mail and Air Express -- Maps of Principal Cities in the United States Showing Main Highways -- Ready Reference Index Locating Cities, Towns and Villages with Population According to Latest Federal Census -- Descriptive Gazetteer of United States and Territorial Possessions." Undated, but "Coupons for Revised Maps" page at close notes "Good up to Jan. 1, 1933," thus pre-1933.
