Presented in this lot is this Yellowstone National Park and Forest Map, 1897. This coloured topographical map is titled, "Yellowstone National Park And Part of Abutting Forest Reserve From Maps by the U.S. Geological Survey". Provenance: this map came from the Francis P.

The map highlights includes, roads completed, roads projected, roads under construction, roads available but not now used by Park Transportation Companies, trails and old wagon trails that might be used for saddle trails."
