A highly decorative map of Europe, surrounded with vignette illustrations. Along the top are views of 10 landmarks, including the Louvre. Westminster Abbey, Moscow's Kremlin and the Parthenon. Around the other three sides are illustrations of the uniforms of 26 European countries. In the corners of the map are the title, a view of the Petit Journal's premises in Paris, and comparative tables of mountain heights and buildings including the newly-completed Eiffel Tower and Washington Monument.
As this map was published as a supplement to the French 'Petit Journal' the ephemeral nature of this map makes surviving examples very unusual.
