A scarce and early "geographical pastime" or map game. Dissected, mounted on old cloth and folding into contemporary slipcase. The map is bordered by side panels listing 117 towns or regions to be visited, dependent on the fall of a "totum" counter, and as described in the printed rules at top left. The purpose of the game being to learn about each place as one played - thus No 29, "Bath. A City celebrated for its medicinal waters and fine buildings. The Traveller must here pay down one stake, which will entitle him to visit the pump room , and every place of public entertainment." The map has a title carrying the date of first publication - 1794, while the attractive label on the slipcase is dated 1802. As often, the game is a little grubby, nevertheless very acceptable.
