    1931 Vintage Original Cartoon Map Yosemite by Jo Mora 16" X 20" Famous Artist (asking $500)
    The condition is very good for age. And the colors are not faded. In “old” wood frame
    Devoting his life to the exploration of subjects as diverse as vaqueros, Hopi Kachina figures, the Arizona landscape, and California missions, Joseph Mora, a Uruguayan-born American cartoonist, also excelled as a writer, photographer, designer, children’s book illustrator, mapmaker and cowboy.
    Joseph Jacinto "Jo" Mora was born in Montevideo, Uruguay (1876-194). He was the son of Domingo Mora, a well-known painter and sculptor who brought his family to the United States in the mid-1890s, and then became a teacher in New York at the Art Students League. Joseph and his artist brother Luis Mora (1874-1940) grew up being much influenced by the creative atmosphere of their father’s studio.
    In 1904 he returned to Arizona and New Mexico. There he lived with Hopi and Navajo tribes, learning their languages and painting their ceremonies, especially the Kachina ceremonial dances. One of the results of his western travels was a series of humorous maps that were spoofs of the national park maps that were made into posters. In the 1930s, the maps sold for 25 cents each and were distributed through souvenir shops at the parks. He also painted a watercolor series, “Horsemen of the West,” and wrote two books, “Trail Dust and Saddle Leather” and “Californios.” Joseph Mora died in Pebble Beach on October 10, 1947.

    Thank you Claudius! I'm one of those "old" people that don't have a cell phone! LOL! So, no apps... But I am thinking of putting all this in our local paper's classifieds!

    I think you might want to see if you can find a memorabilia or kitsch type collector in your area. Or, see if you can get a "packaging type store" such as UPS or USPS or? to give you a bid on packaging and mailing each lot and limit it to continental US. Then list it in lots on eBay, ask enough to get what you want and to cover the outside pakaging and mailing.

    The Yosemite Map by Mora was interesting to me, so I looked it up and found this page which somewhat details the "printings".

    http://www.yosemite.ca.us/library/maps/jo_mora/

    You have alot of cool stuff that at one time would have been right up my alley.

    Wow, Latvia! From California - that is quite a jump! My FIL is from Latvia, still speaks and reads Latvian. I had never heard of Latvia when I met my partner over 25 years ago (I was 19 and geography and history were not my fortes). Best wishes for a smooth transition! Wow!

    Long story short - my parents escaped Latvia in 1944 when the Soviet Russian army came back thru - pushing the Nazi's to the Baltic Sea. They caught the last train going West - and crossed the Baltic Sea in a small fishing boat - they landed on Gotland Island - and my brother and 2 sisters and I were born in Sweden. We came to the U.S. when I was about 4 - and we settled in Petaluma! So going back to my parents' Homeland is getting a bit exciting. Yes, I can speak Latvian... a bit trouble in reading it and writing - but I think I'll be okay!

    Don't feel bad - when I was growing up - Nobody knew "where" Latvia was! LOL!

    for the best wishes too!

    Yes, I visited Latvia in the Soviet times - about 3 times, and than after 1991 when they WON their freedom - at least 5 times! LOL! My parents bought an apartment building when Latvia got free - there are 4 apartments (2 top, 2 bottom). My brother owns it now, and lives in one of the top ones - and I get the one across from him, where my Mamma used to live - she died in 2011 at 90 years old.
    Yes - a BIG move for me, as I've lived here in California for most of my life. But living on Soc. Security here makes it really difficult. There I'll be "rich"!! LOL! Thank you for your thoughtful words!
