More or Less Inaccurate Map of Taos, N.M.
Date of Creation:
A humorous map of the Taos region by a well-known artist of the Taos School, Ward Lockwood. Included is the area from Rancho de Taos to the Taos Pueblo. The title notes that the map is the “Guide to the Land of Manana in a State of Peace”. The scale of miles is a question mark [ “?”] as “Everything is out of Scale here”
Verso is a short history of Taos noting the Town had been on the map for 400 years, which would date this item as 1940 or later. Lockwood was not a permanent resident by this time, so it is possible the map dates from an earlier period
The Rumsey collection has a later printing of the map.
