Vintage maps from National Geographic magazines x 2 (1948-9) - SW USA, Mediterranean
 
A pair of vintage folded paper maps from late 1940s issues of the National Geographic magazine, "Compiled and Drawn in the Cartographic Section of the National Geographic Society" (Washington, D.C.) for the magazine, as follows: 
 
(a) "Southwestern United States" (December 1948) - Scale 1:2,500,000. 16-fold map, measuring approximately 87.9 x 59.5cm (34.6 x 23.4in) fully unfolded, showing the physical and political features and major transport routes of Utah, Nevada, California, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado.
 
(b) "Classical Lands of the Mediterranean" (December 1949) - Scale 1:2,750,000. 16-fold map, measuring approximately 81.9 x 55.8cm (32.25 x 22in) fully unfolded; the main map shows locations of legendary and ancient historical events within modern-day Italy, Greece and neighbouring countries, whilst separate maps show the ancient world, ancient Athens and ancient Rome.
 
Both maps are discoloured and marked and are somewhat grubby in places, with general age wear including bumping, creasing, slight edge tearing, small areas of surface loss, and wear to folds; the Classical Lands map has some damp staining, slight rust marks and small areas of old insect / snail damage to the lower half.
