Maps from Books I

The Jumblies
by Edward Lear 

"For they'd been to the lakes, and the Torrible Zone,
And the Hills of the Chankly Bore...."

I thought this was an appropriate map to begin this series of posts. Edward Gorey illustrated a version of The Jumblies published in 1968 with this wonderful image of the the far side of the Western Sea. It measures 14 x 42 cms.
