ALEPH [HARVEY, William]. [Pictorial map of Denmark]
Denmark. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1869. 250 x 210mm.
Anthropomorphic map of Denmark. The text below the image reads, "For Shakespeare's Prince, and the Princess of Wales, To England dear. Her royal spirit quails; From skating faint, she rests upon the snow; Shrinking from unclean beasts hat grin below". From a charming atlas of caricature maps of European counties, drawn, according to the preface, by a fifteen-year-old girl to muse 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, Bismark & Tzar Alexander II.
