Matrimonial Maps


Rod Barron, a British-based antiquarian book and map dealer, has assembled a collection of matrimonial maps dating from the mid-1700s to the 20th century. These humorous maps depicted states of emotion, milestones, and stages of intimacy as geographical features. Young men and women could depart from the Country Of Single Men and the Land of Spinsters and travel through the waters of courtship and matrimony, hopefully avoiding The United States of Agitation.
