Map maker : HADOL, Paul Joseph..
Date : Paris, 1870.
Size : 13.2 x 20.7 inches. / 33.5 x 52.5 cm.
Colouring : Original colour
Description :An original French edition of Paul Joseph Hadol's satirical political cartoon map of Europe showing countries personified in caricature and alluding to the tensions that finally erupted as the Franco-Prussian War in July 1870. Published by Imprimerie Vallée in Paris.
In the center Prussia interacts with its suspicious neighbours embracing all the German states, and expands in every direction with one hand placed firmly on Holland and Belgium. With one knee she crushes Austria, while with the other she pushes menacingly against the French frontier; France desperately repulses her.
England is depicted as an old woman holding its dog, Ireland, by a leash. Spain and Turkey are portrayed as unconcerned women on the fringes relaxing with a cigarette and a hookah respectively. Corsica and Sardinia become an impish figure mooning the viewer.
A rifle with a bayonet near the bottom edge is sardonically labeled 'Degrees of Longitude'. Original hand-coloured lithograph. Price ''20 centimes' printed in the margins. Explanation in French and impressum 'Paris, Imprimerie Vallée ... ' at the bottom.
