This bold map of Maine’s Mount Desert Island was created in 1938 by the National Survey Company and distributed by the Publicity Committee of Bar Harbor. Park boundaries are highlighted in red, with Acadia National Park prominently shown in the east. Transportation routes ranging from paved roads to foot trails are noted according to the legend in the upper left. Golf courses, beaches, and other points of interest are also identified.

The island’s rugged topography is depicted in hachure, while a windhead in the upper corner provides power for local sailors. Text and promotional photographs on the verso, including an image of what appears to be a Ford Trimotor at the Bar Harbor Airport (largely outdated by the time of publication).
