On the occasion of Boston Rare Maps’ 20th anniversary, I am pleased to announce the release of our new catalog,
Mapping the American Century.
The catalog is a celebration of American mapmaking from 1900 to 2000 and beyond. Here you will find E. Simms Campbell’s iconic “Night-Club Map of Harlem”, a 50-foot map of the shifting courses of the Mississippi River, a stunning collection of Second World War unit route maps, a continuous 16-year run of maps from the Burning Man festival, and a great deal more. Taken together, the variety of material is groundbreaking, and I hope it suggests the many opportunities for exploring through maps the story of “The American Century”.
You can view an interactive “flipbook” version of the catalog below.
