A stunning 1976 pictorial map of Martha's Vineyard. Lithographed in a striking black and white pen and ink style, the map covers all of Martha's Vineyard with vignette illustrations of the island's iconic homes, scenery, and ships. A wale appears in the lower left in reference to the island's whaling heritage. Edgartown, Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, Chilmark and West Tisbury are all identified. The border of the map features quotes from Bartholomew Gosnold (1571 - 1607) who discovered Martha's Vineyard in 1602.
