Description

Nice example of the second edition of this decorative pictorial map of Alaska, first drawn by Edward Camy for the Alaska Steamship Company in 1934. The present example is significantly revised, with the color palette changing and several additional vignettes drawn.

The map includes a large inset of the Alaska railway route from Seward to Fairbanks, which also shows the Richardson Automobile Highway.

The map includes a fine array of whimsical caricatures of the Territory of Alaska, including a Siberian figure looking across the Behring Straits with the caption "Hi Ya Sam?" foreshadowing the comments of a certain vice-presidential candidate in 2012. Numerous 

Along the bottom of the map, there are a series of views showing passengers enjoying the cruise amenities aboard the Alaska Line, which was then traveling between Seattle and Kodiak.

In short, a fine map of Alaska from this remarkable series.
