This humorous map of North America was drawn with a vastly oversized Texas occupying approximately half of the United States, similar to the "Official Texas Brags Map" of 1948 on a smaller scale. Includes numerous vignettes within the state including "world's biggest jackrabbits", "world's largest oil field" and "Big D - world's most beautiful girls." Areas outside of Texas include "Storm Area", "Unexplored Territory", and "Yankeeland." Self-folding (4.3 x 9.0") with related text on verso. There are no past sales records and only one institutional example located on OCLC.
