Ye Olde Spanish Main, 1933

Designed and executed by Jo Mora. This is a cartoon pictorial map of historical and geographical significance covering much of North America, but highlighting the Caribbean area, Central America, and Mexico. The informative intent of this carte is historical and topographical yet it is rendered in the manner humorous that its perusal may be accomplished rather with the smile of levity than the frown of research.
