Utah Historical Trails Map: The Routes of Explorers, Early Wayfarers, and Immigrant Trails Depicted in Relation to the Modern Highway System of the States

Salt Lake City: Utah Department of Publicity & Industrial Development, 1948. Map [56 cm x 44 cm] Printed in black on white paper with the historical trails labeled and printed in red. One horizontal fold and one vertical fold as issued. Minor creasing at edges of center folds. Drawn by Fehmel. Introduction by Rulon S. Howells. '8/95' in ink above title. Item #2250

The verso contains a short introduction by Rulon S. Howell, and short individual descriptions of the various historical trails of Utah.

According to Saunders: “Though this was a publicity item Howells introduced it as a general trail guide, cautioning those who venture off-road to be well prepared. This map is actually not detailed enough to be much of a help to anyone intent on tracing the actual trails.”

Clearly the basis for the Utah Centennial trails map (1996) that was prepared by several members of the Utah Westerners. This is one of my personal favorite Morgan items. Very cool. Saunders 73.

Price: $125.00
