HUNGARIAN PICTORIAL MAP OF WORLD WAR I: A háborús Europa térkép-karikatúrája
[Budapest:] Zeizler Sándor, publisher - Rosenthal, lithographer, 1914. Colour lithograph 41.5 x 51 cm (inches) (tiny tears in margins, overall in a good condition). A scarce Hungarian pictorial map representing the World War I is a propaganda for the Central Powers, which are here depicted as a powerful force attacking and scaring the neighboring countries, which are showcased in various comical anthropomorphic forms, reflecting their weaknesses. This is one of the rare pictorial WWI maps, where large Hungary is represented as an individual figure. Shaped as a charging horseman it is attaching the Eastern Europe in the shape of a large Russian, drunk on Vodka, who is keeping his army reserves of Turkic nations, ready to fight, stacked away in boxes. Im most of the other similar maps Hungary is depicted as a part of Austro-Hungary, but on this map Austria is leaning on Hungary as a soldier. The map is very rare and we could not find any institutional examples on Worldcat. The National Library of Hungary holds two examples.
