Wisdom - British Isles : Universal Magazine

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fascinating and attractive frontispiece for the "Universal Magazine" - one of the popular periodicals of the mid-eighteenth century. The image shows a map of England, Scotland and Wales with the figure of Wisdom dispensing knowledge across the land. Text beneath the map provides "The Explanation ... Wisdom casting forth the Rays of Learning and Knowledge over the Island of Great Britain & Ireland and Britania, on her right hand with an Angel descending to her with a Crown of Laurel." Negligible stitch holes, well away from printed area, so a good example.
