Richmond, VA: A. Hoen & Company, 1930. Limited. Signed. One of Charles Smith's loveliest works, this Virginia map is rendered in soft greens and pinks, with a focus on the historical, rather than geographical information.~The 24 x 32" map is folded into board cover, with inset maps showing Old Richmond, "The Capital of Virginia--1779", "Virginia's Historic Rivers" emptying into the Bay, and a map of the United States. There are 34 drawings of historic buildings and monuments which form the borders of the map. And of course there are cartographic decorations -- a smiling sun shining down from a corner, an early seal of Virginia as well as the present seal, and a compass rose. A charmer, which unabashedly romanticizes the history of this lovely state. This is #7 of 500 copies, Signed by Charles Smith. The portfolio has some wear, and spine has been repaired. The map itself is Fine. (Inventory #: 274069)
