A delightfully whimsical 1846 map of Europe, from a German kinderatlas or children's atlas. The map details the entire European continent and is divided with color coding into countries. The whole is surrounded by a wide border featuring charming vignettes meant to illustrate the peoples and cultures of the region. These include men riding the railroad, a cross and the Bible, the Lady of Justice etc. The map is accompanied by its adjacent page, which includes a poetic history of Europe in German gothic type. The wonderful and rare map was drawn by Anst. V A. Boeden of Berlin for inclusion as plate no. II in the 1846 issue of Julius Loewenberg's Geographische Landerfibel.
