Gold frame with thin blue painted line. One small mark on frame please see photo. Otherwise in Excellent Condition. Story Map of France. 17 x 13.5 inches. Frame: 21 x 18 inches. A detailed and colorful pictorial map of France, filled with drawings of historic sites, incidents and portraits of important French men and women, including explanatory captions. Insofar as there is so much historical information, geography is kept simple, showing major rivers and other bodies of water, counties, cities and towns. There are ships in the oceans both historic vessels and others left uncaptioned and whimsical beings such as the sea monster in the Atlantic Ocean and the merman holding a staff topped by a fleur-de-lis in the compass rose. Other interesting features include the German farthest advance in World War I and a drawing of prehistoric cave paintings in the Dordogne region. A caption in the lower right margin explains that the border design and decorations [are] from 17th century Louis Quinze tapestries and 18th century Robert de otte ornaments. The border also includes a portrait of Napoleon. A small table lists distinguished citizens born in Paris. A tiny credit line in the lower left border above the publication information appears to read A. Another example of this map is in the collection of the Newberry Library (see References below). Colortext Publications published educational books and pictorial maps in the second quarter of the 20th century. A series of Story Maps were published between 1935 and 1950, including maps of Europe, France, Ireland, Scotland, England, Mexico, the United States and the West Indies. Colortext also published maps of France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland during this period by the cartographer and illustrator Ernest Dudley Chase and a map of Kentucky for the H. In addition to Chase, Colortext maps were drawn by Egbert G. Jacobson, Julio de Diego, A. Apparently these maps were intended to engage and educate American youth.
