[Pictorial Map] Nelson, Old Chicago By Jean Sterling Nelson Drawing By John Winters. Chicago, 1940. 29½ x 35¼. Color litho. A few small separations at folds else VG. With 5-page pamphlet, "Key to Map." Sold
Conceived by interior designer Nelson and executed by commercial artist Winters. The historical notes and choices of images are somewhat idiosyncratic, but for interested parties Nelson recommends visits to the Chicago Historical Society (now the Chicago History Museum). Vignettes include the familiar – Mrs. O'Leary's cow, Fort Dearborn – but lesser known sites are also located such as Chicago's first synagogue (1849) and Mary Lincoln's 1866 home.
