A hand drawn map based on a map of matrimony. The map shows different areas relating to the various emotions felt over the course of a relationship leading up to the Big Day. At the top of the map is the 'St of Flirtation' with a caution: 'dangerous navigation'. Other regions include the 'United States of Agitation', the 'Petticoat Government', 'Bay of Engagement' and 'Mountains of Delay - inhabited by lawyers'. However, should one end up on the 'Land of Spinsters' they would be encircled by the 'Coast of Scandal' and 'Cape Doubtful'. A charming and unusual manuscript on card, carefully drawn in pen and watercolour probably around 1900.
