This whimsical map of Nantucket Island was designed and published by Austin Strong in 1921. It is hand colored and beautifully framed with an archival backing. 14 1/4 in. x 16 3/4 in., sight; 20 1/2 in. x 23in. oa. Very nice condition. This is a scarce map and a very nice item for the collector of Nantucket memorabilia.
Austin Strong, step grandson of Robert Louis Stevenson and a well known playwright, was, together with Tony Sarg, one of the founders of the Nantucket Wharf Rats.
