Albany, NY: Weed, Parsons & Co., 1875. Folding brochure with map on one side measuring 22 x 44.5 cm, plus margins.

A promotional map for the newly built White Sulphur Spring Park Hotel near Saratoga Springs, a popular resort for over 200 years and famed for the mineral springs next to which it was built.

This map depicts Lake Saratoga bordered by the towns of Saratoga, Saratoga Springs and Stillwater, and promotes the Hotel—first opened for the season of 1875—situated on the southeastern shore of the lake. A steamboat line is shown cutting across the lake connecting Saratoga Springs with the hotel. The verso text advertises round-trip excursion tickets to the Hotel—whose nearby sulphur spring is called “one of the finest in the world, with Medicinal Properties which have made it famous for many years.” Also advertised on the verso is a “beautiful bath house,” which is replete with thirty-two baths supplied with hot and cold sulphur water. The College Regatta Course is featured in the middle of the lake where college crews from the northeast compete. Appearing on the verso is a list of crews at the lake for a race being held at the time, along with a price list of the food and drink offered by the Hotel.

Scarce. OCLC notes only 2 copies, at Stony Brook University and Dartmouth College.
