Dame Venodotia, or Aunt Gwen. A rare and fascinating curiosity map showing North Wales as a barefoot old woman with a heavy sack on her shoulders. On close examination other shapes begin to appear within the map such as goats, dogs, rabbits and a lady wearing an elaborate gown. This particular example was publsihed by H. Humphreys and shows the text beneath, rather than to the side of the map, as with Hugh Hughes 1845 example. Printed on thin paper with archival margins and backing.
