Cartoon Maps From The 1860s

Interesting anthropomorphic cartography drawn by a teenager in the 1860s.

The young lady who is responsible for these Sketches is now in her fifteenth year, and her first idea of Map Drawing is traceable to her meeting with a small figure of Punch riding on a Dolphin, and contrived to represent England. The thought occurred to her when seeking to amuse a brother confined to his bed by illness.
