<<< With all due respect to the good gentles of the Outlands, I really  
see paying $700 for Colorado, unless you're collecting the whole set.
It's. . . a rectangle.

I noticed they didn't include Hawaii or Alaska. Alaska would be even  
more expensive than Texas and Hawaii would be difficult as a bunch of  
little pans!

I did order from Edward Hamilton Books recently this book but I  
haven't gotten it yet, so I don't know if it is any good.

How the States Got Their Shapes
  by Mark Stein

I can't get to their website, despite them giving the address in their  
catalog, I keep getting just ads but here is a description from  
another site:
"Why does Oklahoma have that panhandle? Did someone make a mistake?

We are so familiar with the map of the United States that our state  
borders seem as much a part of nature as mountains and rivers. Even  
the oddities—the entire state of Maryland(!)—have become so engrained  
that our map might as well be a giant jigsaw puzzle designed by Divine  
Providence. But that's where the real mystery begins. Every edge of  
the familiar wooden jigsaw pieces of our childhood represents a  
revealing moment of history and of, well, humans drawing lines in the  

How the States Got Their Shapes is the first book to tackle why our  
state lines are where they are. Here are the stories behind the  
stories, right down to the tiny northward jog at the eastern end of  
Tennessee and the teeny-tiny (and little known) parts of Delaware that  
are not attached to Delaware but to New Jersey."
