Rare illustrated publication including a rare map of Europe as a regal queen with the title "Geheimzinnige toebereidselen tot eene boertige reis door Europa. [...] voorgeleezen in [...] de maatschappij der verdiensten, onder de spreuk: Felix Meritis. / By A. Fokke Simonsz".
The book contains a map of Europe (168x2369mm.) engraved by H.Klockhoff and an cartographical curiosities, "Europa volgens de nieuwste verdeeling...", Europe as a regal queen but with an interesting twist and political commentary. This anti-Napoleonic image demotes Europa from a virgin-queen to a homely middle-aged housewife. The figure is superimposed over a map that includes a fair amount of detail.
The Iberian peninsula as a head, Italy as her left arm, stirring with her right arm (Corsica and Sardinia) in a pot (Sicily). Her scarf forms Britain, and the rest of the continent is encompassed in her flowing dress.
Printed by Francois Bohn in Haarlem, who was active from 1786 till 1819.
