Germany.
1869 - London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1869. 250 x 210mm. Anthropomorphic map of Germany as a woman. The text below the image reads, ''Lo! Studious Germany, in her delight, At coming glories, shewn by second sight, And on her visioned future proudly glancing, Her joy expresses by a lady dancing''. 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 Alexander II of Russia.
