Yosemite Wawona route via Mariposa big trees, Inspiration Point and Glacier Point ... Oiled roads[.] Yosemite Stage & Turnpike Company ... [cover title]. San Francisco: Yosemite Stage & Turnpike Co., n.d. [1900?]. Single sheet, 55.5x71.8 cm (21 3/4 x 28 inches) folded to make 48 panels approximately 19x9.3 cm (7 3/8 x 3 5/8 inches). Printer's imprint "Britton & Rey, San Francisco" at bottom of both outer panels. Promotional brochure printed in green and black inks on thin paper, with three maps, seven illustrations from photographs, and text. Advertised accommodations in Yosemite Valley are the Sentinel Hotel and Ideal Camp, both managed by Jay Bruce Cook. "At the foot of Yosemite Falls an Ideal Camp has been opened under the same management as the Hotel. The Camp is in charge of Galen Clark, the discoverer of the Mariposa Big Tree Grove, and one of the first white men to enter Yosemite Valley." Ideal Camp, managed by Jay Cook, was established in 1900 by the Washburn family. Its famous host was Yosemite pioneer Galen Clark. Ideal Camp lasted only for the 1900 season. In 1901 the camp's name was changed to Camp Yosemite and in 1907 the name was changed to Camp Lost Arrow. The brochure makes no mention of Ideal Camp's competitor, Camp Curry, established in 1899. In 1900 the majority of those visiting Yosemite traveled to the Valley in stages owned and operated by the Washburns, spent one night enroute at their Wawona Hotel, or were Sentinel Hotel guests. The maps are: "Map of Yosemite National Park California, showing the Stage Route via the Mariposa Big Tree Grove, Wawona, Inspiration Point and Glacier Point," "Wagonroads, Trails and Prominent Features of Yosemite Valley California. Drawn by J. C. Henkenius" and "Route Yosemite National Park via the Mariposa Big Tree Grove and Inspiration Point. Drawn by J. C. Henkenius." Two of the three maps are credited to J. C. Henkenius, a surveyor and noted draftsman who served as chief draftsman for many California maps. Several short splits at folds and intersections, a few mild creases, some tanning to paper stock, a very good copy. (#167006).
