Unusual map of matrimony, here an engraving overprinted on a card with an embossed border, as if something to be carried in a wallet. Among the more unusual regions of the map are 'Mountains of Delay Inhabited by lawyers', 'Jewellers and Milliners', 'Pt. Pin Money' and the 'Electorate of Brides Maids', while the 'Road of Content' passes through the 'Port of Hymen' which is surely deliberately drawn, leading up 'R. Congratulation'. A charming and rare romantic keepsake.
