A charming pictorial map of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Although unsigned, this map is attributed to Ernest Dudly Chase. It was first issued in 1949 and would later be revised by his wife, Clara Chase in 1956 and again circa 1960.

Fine pictographic map of the Cape Cod area, including Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Falmouth, Hyannis, Plymouth, Provincetown, and Chatham. The map depicts bird's-eye images of major sites and attractions, the Cape Cod Canal, highways, railroads, beaches, boats, seagulls, beachgoers, lighthouses and lightships. Also shown is Plymouth Rock and the "Good Ship Mayflower.”

Inset illustrations of historic buildings and tourist attractions such as Brewster's Old Windmill and "A Bit of Provincetown" embellish the upper, lower and right margins. Other decorative embellishments include a compass rose with a rope border surmounted by an anchor, and a cartouche flanked by pine needles, vines, and a codfish.
