Description

Nice example of this rare pictorial map of Yosemite, "Drawn in Broken English by Jolly Lindgren."

This comic pictorial map is full of puns and comic vignettes related to Yosemite. In all, a remarkable amalgam of early Yosemite history, early structures and sites, along with whimsical observations.

The compass rose vignette includes a note that "It's cockeyed we know but this part is correct!"

The Lindgren Brothers issued a number of other silly whimsical maps of national parks and other parts of the West. This Yosemite map is one of the last of the series and perhaps the rarest.

This is the second of two Lindgren Brothers maps of Yosemite.
