17" x 22" unfolded. Black and white: "A Map of Montana, Whereon is Depicted and Inscribed the Pioneer History of the Land of Shining Mountains." One side is a map of Montana illustrated with line drawings by iconic Western artist Irvin "Shorty" Shope, depicting frontier-era events. Other side are more of Shope's drawings accompanying a history of the state by Montana Highway Department engineer Bob Fletcher, known as the 'roadside historian' for his legacy of commemorative highway markers. Light soiling on verso and corners have been dog-eared, but map is very good to near fine. Irvin "Shorty" Shope's artwork is held in collections at Favell Museum of Western Art and Indian Artifacts, Leanin’ Tree of Western Art, National Center for American Western Art, and Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. He was a charter member of Cowboy Artists of America.
