¶ Very scarce railroad map of Texas, which also includes parts of Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, and Mexico. Delineated are counties, major cities, and also small cities that held a prominent place along certain railroads. The scale of the map is approximately 10 miles to 1/4 in. * OUR COPY CONTAINS THE RARE BOOKLET, the full title of which is: "Texas and Oklahoma railway and hotel official guide: containing the official time tables of all railway lines operating in Texas and Oklahoma, also useful and valuable information for the traveling public, for shippers and for railway men generally." This excellent guide is of further interest in the abundance of woodcut illustrations of actual hotels, many (most?) of which have been destroyed.
