Description

Striking example of the scarce pictorial map of New Hampshire by Elizabeth Shurtleff and Helen F. McMillin.

Fine pictorial map of New Hampshire by Elizabeth Shurtleff and Helen F. McMillin. The decorative border of this map is filled with the seals/coats of arms of various New Hampshire cities and universities. The map itself is filled with illustrated historical details, references to local jokes/stories, and mainly shows illustrated figures doing various activities, often with comical captions.

The influence of MacDonald Gill's Wonderground map of London Town is apparent in the "speech bubbles" with short pithy sayings or quips emerging from the mouths of many of the characters.
