Almost a mind map by Lewis Carroll

Dating from around 1849 "The Rectory Umbrella" was a magazine written & illustrated by Lewis Carroll at 17 years of age.

This image was the frontispiece to the magazine & said to resemble Leech's design for a cover of Punch magazine.

The design suggests the umbrella is protection against the horrid little imps that would disturb the old gentleman's peace of mind. This clever & original illustration is very similar to a mind map! Almost a mind map by Lewis Carroll.

Details & image from The Strand Magazine - page 618 (Volume XVI Dec 1898)
