Jo Mora's first Yosemite carte was black and white and not well received. The Curry Company asked Jo to color it in for reprinting. They then produced the first of two smaller maps in color - this carte being from the second printing in color. The carte was updated with several changes requiring the services of another artistt, because Jo had died in 1947. The original hand colored map done by Jo can be seen at the Yosemite Museum. As with all his cartes, this one is packed with historical information and details, creatively and colorfully illustrated. (Gilmore M9A).
