Side-stapled booklet with yellow paper covers, apparently self-published. Covers are mildly soiled, light creasing. . This is a proposed design for a boulevard system for the city of Champaign, Illinois, by the author. Includes a fold-out blueprint showing the design, as well as textual discussion. Since there are several Hessel place names in present-day Champaign, it seems possible that this design was adopted, in whole or in part, for the expansion of Champaign. The booklet is undated, but the blueprint bears a date of 1917. This is the first printing, NOT a modern reprint. Scarce. . 8vo 8" - 9" tall. 12 pages. I1
