McLoughlin Bros. issued at least two series of three-dimensional panorama books in the 1880s, and Jumbo is the latest arrival in our collection of these rare delights. The poem playfully describes a farmer who is not only pecked by the parrot, but gets his hat stolen by the seemingly grave and wise elephant, putting a humorous wrinkle on the image of man as the ruler of nature.
