Howell's Relief Maps Assure Accuracy and Instant Conception For an intelligent and profitable study or even a working knowledge of geography, it is being rapidly realized that a good relief map is indispensable, since no printed map can illustrate the salient features of the earth with such clearness, accuracy, or completeness as do Howell's naturalistic land models. You Are a Geographer Why not, therefore, have for your office, library, or home, as well as for school, college, and university, Howell's Relief Maps, which convey to you at a glance the true outlines of the con tinents, brought out in bold relief, showing the boundaries and capitals of the different countries, their formation and location, colored and lettered, and, above all, absolutely accurate. The Cost of Relief Maps Not Excessive, as Supposed We have been producing Relief Maps for the United States Government for years, and at every exposition at home and abroad-at Madrid, Chicago, Atlanta, Omaha, Paris, Buffalo, and St. Louis-our work has received the highest awards and medals. We have made for the Government more than sixty different relief maps and models, besides a great many for different States, railroads, land and coal companies, electric and power plants, universities, schools, and colleges. That is surely evidence of the paramount value of Howell's Relief Maps, and we have been enabled through long experience to greatly reduce the cost of pro duction; therefore these maps, generally considered very expensive, are brought well within your reach. Special Maps and Models Built Besides our great variety of relief maps, we are prepared to compile relief maps and models showing landscape gardening, municipal improvements, playgrounds, etc., in any part of the country, from data furnished. Think of the importance of being able to see every detail of your project as it will be, with proper elevations, buildings, etc., built to exact scale, as a permanent record. The material used in Howell's Relief Maps and Models is a preparation of our own, com bining the good qualities of papier-mache and plaster, but very much lighter and stronger and not affected by changes of temperature and moisture. We will send you upon request an illustrated catalogue of Howell's Relief Maps and any further information desired. Write today. " There is no question as to the great value of Howell's Relief Maps.
