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 artist was Lilian Lancaster (1852-1939) who produced several caricature maps, sometimes under her married name of Tennant.
The maps contain many references to the political changes sweeping through continental Europe, with representations of Garibaldi and Bismarck.
