A large partially-colored map of Missouri and Arkansas issued by Rand McNally, including extensive information for immigrants in panels on the verso. The map depicts the entirety of Missouri and Arkansas, together with portions of bordering states, with the railroad lines printed in a heavy black line spidering across both states. The text printed on the panels of the verso advertises the cheap land and great agricultural opportunities for home-seeking pioneers, listing numerous inducements for settlers to Arkansas. We locate one copy in OCLC, at Yale.
