Originally published in 1813, this example has been undated for re-issue in 1820, when Arrowsmith became 'Hydrographer to the King', when George IV became king instead of Prince Regent.

ALEPH [HARVEY, William]. [Pictorial map of England]
England. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1869. 250 x 210mm.
Anthropomorphic map of England. The text below the image reads, ''Beautiful England, - on her Island throne, - Grandly she rules, - with half the world her own; From her vast empire the sun ne'er departs: She reigns a Queen - Victoria, Queen of Hearts''. 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.
