Local Numbers:
NAA MS 169270
Local Note:
Most of the maps are not identified as to the precise area they represent except by Eskimo place names. Other notes on the maps include a short text in Eskimo and some notes in German and English; most of these notes are illegible, because Boas used a shorthand system of his own in writing many of them, and his handwriting is very difficult to read even when not abbreviated.
