Antique Maps of Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana/1910

BONUS MAP: Also included is a National Geographic Society map from their Close-up U. S. A. series. This one has Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas. It can be enlightening to compare antique maps tp more modern day depictions of the same states. 

These antique maps of Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana show some age discoloration around the outside edges, areas that are customarily covered by the frame or matte when framed for wall mounting. The rest of it is clear of such discoloration; the map colors are clear and bright. Oklahoma and Louisiana are one-page maps. Portions of Texas are on the reverse sides. Unfortunately, you can only view three quarters of Texas at once because the panhandle is on the reverse side of eastern Texas. So, if you buy it to have Oklahoma and/or Louisiana framed and mounted, you're OK, but if you want it in order to have an antique map of Texas for reference purposes, like I do, you're also OK. But you can't have both, unless you don't frame and mount OK and LA.
These old maps often have many place names that no longer appear on modern maps, and therein lies their value and their allure. I wore out some old maps of Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas hunting down old settlements and mining camps. In many if not most cases, the history of these places and the people who lived there is lost forever. Who wrote the history of Taft, Montana, a rip-roaring hell-on-wheels town at the end of the Great Northern Railroad that was burned to nothing by the great firestorm of 1910 that blazed through northern Idaho and western Montana, killing everything in its path that was too slow or too unlucky to get out of its way? No one did, or ever will, but we found its remains. I once found a map that showed the town my mother was born in, a town that didn't appear on any map published after 1920 that I ever found. I still have it framed on the wall of my home office.
Someone out there will find a gem, or several gems, on these old maps.

My maps are mailed flat in a cardboard sandwich to prevent damage in transit. They do not qualify as media mail, so they must go First Class mail, and a package with the dimensions of a flat map costs me at least $5.50-$5.95, and the rest of the $6.80 shipping charge is Ebay's cut. Please see the additional shipping explanation below.

Please save me as a seller for World War I, World War II, Western Americana, the Indian Wars, the fur trade, mountaineering, politics (mostly lefty), economics, travel, fiction, art, and an eclectic selection of science books, especially astronomy, cosmology, human origins, geology and archaeology. I've been listing a lot of maps--antiques, vintage USGS topographical and USGS geological maps, all of western states. I don't have all categories listed all the time. I get a little long-winded when writing my descriptions, so I usually only get five or ten listings done on any given day.

Also, please understand that we are not gouging you on shipping cost. Ebay takes a final value fee on every item we sell, of course, but they are also collecting the final value fee on shipping. Consequently, if we charge actual shipping cost, we lose 14.55% on shipping. So we add about 15% to cover Ebay’s cut.

Please be aware that I am disabled with limited support resources and can only make it to the Post Office once a week, usually on Tuesday or Wednesday.
