ALEPH [HARVEY, William].
London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1869. 250 x 210mm. Anthropomorphic map of Scotland. The text below the image reads: ''A gallant piper, struggling through the bogs, His wind bag broken, wearing his clay clogs; Yet strong of heart, a fitting emblem makes, For Scotland - land of heroes and of cakes''. It was published in 'Geographical Fun', a charming atlas of caricature maps of European counties, drawn, according to the preface, by a fifteen-year-old girl to amuse her sick brother. The author was, however, William Harvey (1796-1873), a London doctor and journalist, best-known for his book 'London Scenes and London People', 1863. The maps contain many references to the political changes sweeping through continental Europe, with representations of Garibaldi and Bismarck.
