Vintage Map of University of Michigan Campus with: Collage Illustration of Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor, MI; Columbus, OH: P. Burkovsky; Community Creations, Inc., 1937; Circa 2010. First Printings. Single Sheets. Two wonderful, fascinating map-illustrations of Ann Arbor & its University of Michigan: (1) Illustrated bird's-eye view map of the central campus of UM, titled "University of Michigan Campus in 1937" & with "Copyright April 26, 1937 by P. Bukovsky," "Drawn by P. Bukovsky." With detailed illustration of the campus & its contemporary buildings in borders, below which is a "Names of Buildings" list keyed to letters in vertical borders; numbers in horizontal borders. On thick paper stock, appx. 26" x 14&1/2". (2) collage-illustration of Ann Arbor, simply titled "Ann Arbor Michigan" below the artwork, & crammed with depictions of the people & places of our beloved home city- a one-image historical, biographical & architectural primer. Drawn by the acclaimed artist Bruce Loeschen, this item is not currently included on his website & so is presumed to be out-of-print. There is no date, but the seasoned eye of this Townie writer places it around 2010. On thick paper stock, appx. 26" x 19". Both of these, printed on recto only, are deep works of art & history, of great interest to Ann Arbor-UM devotees like us. Suitable for framing & worth browsing intensely at length. (1) in relatively fine condition considering its age (83 as of this writing) with only very slight browning mostly along blank margins (which actually contributes to a venerable antique patina); very slight wear & a few tiny bumps, creases at edges & corners; one very short, closed horizontal tear at mid-right edge. (2) in very fine condition with only very slight vertical waving which can be flattened by mounting &/or framing; otherwise substantially mint. Fine; Very Fine. [Item #3680]
