Full Description

Copper engraving, 46 x 51 cm, dissected into 12 sheets and laid on linen, original hand colour, folding into original marbled slipcase with engraved publisher’s labels, some wear. Lacks rules. An unusual cartographic game in which the players travel around Europe learning as they do so (the rules booklet, recorded with an 1829 edition held in California, presumably contained suitably educational comments). William Darton junior and his son Thomas briefly worked together, 1807-10.
