This is just a great original piece. They have become very popular among collectors as well as institutions. A great chance to build your collection. This one seems particularly rare. I have owned this one other time. This was done in 2 sizes and originally done in black and white. Occasionally you will find these with some great hand coloring. This is one of those. A great map by Coulton Waugh. For those not familiar with the artist, I have included his biography below. This is the small version with the map measuring 9 x 13 inches on complete original sheet measuring 11 3/4 x 16 inches. Overall in good condition. There are a few edge tears and a few small creases. The bottom third of the map shows a consistent toning that is much more visible in the margins. Otherwise a very good example. The hand coloring is still very strong and vibrant. Do your research on this map. For those not familiar with the artist his biography from askart reads: Coulton Waugh, who was born into an artistic family, was one of the main artists who worked on the famous’Dickie Dare’ comics, created by Milton Caniff. Coulton Waugh did the strip for more than 20 years – from 1933 until 1957. Waugh met his future wife, Odin, when he hired her to work on the strip as an artist and letterer. In 1945, he created’Hank’, which only ran a short time. From 1947 on, Coulton Waugh divided his time between comics, painting and teaching. Coulton Waugh is also the author of’The Comics’, a reference on the history of comics. He died May 23, 1973. Coulton Waugh was a painter, comic strip artist and author. He is credited by some with reviving the art of decorative mapmaking when he exhibited a large silk pictorial map of Cape Cod in 1918 at the International Silk Show (Guadazno, 2000). He created other pictorial maps, including ones of Provincetown (1924) and others related to Cape Cod, as well as a map of California (1948), a collaboration with his wife Odin. The son of maritime painter Frederick Waugh, he grew up in Provincetown, Massachusetts and later made his home in Newburgh, New York. He took over the strip “Dickie Dare” from its creator Milton Caniff in 1933, and drew it until 1957. Waugh also painted, taught art and wrote a seminal history of cartooning called The Comics (1947), one of the first serious examinations of the medium, as well as instructional books on cartooning and palette-knife painting.
