New York: F. & R. Lockwood, 1822. Book. Good+ condition. Unbound. First Edition. Folio. What is offered is the map portion only of the first American board game. Engraved map, hand-colored; measures 28.2x38.2 cm (approximately 11x15"). The map has been backed on board, the entirety is lightly to moderately browned and faded, there are several tears at the edge without loss, and there are two stains. This map is a whole sheet, which is unlike the three copies found on Worldcat/OCLC, which are instead cut into sections and backed in linen for storage in the slipcase. The map contains 139 numbered unnamed stops, to which according to the teetotum a player would advance, name the numbered city, state the population of the city or be penalized. Not present is the teetotum (a spinning top marked with numbers), game tokens called "traveller's" tokens, the letterpress text sheet, and the slipcase. This is a rare map, and shows two numbered stops in Michigan Territory, the North West Territory and Arkansas Territory but there is no number for Chicago! Map only..
