Satirical illustration by Paul Hadol showing disposition of power in Europe at the beginning of 1870. Satirical print depicting a map of Europe in which the countries are formed from national characters. Omnipotent Russia, embracing all the German states, expands in every direction with one hand placed firmly on Holland and Belgium. With one knee she crushes Austria. With the other she pushes menacingly against the French frontier France desperately repulses her.
See : Lambert, Susan. The Franco-Prussian War and The Commune in Caricature 1870-1871.
These maps, often ephemeral in nature, are now all increasingly scarce. Although the date on the map is 1870, it was published by Fuchs ("Verlag von Chs. Fuchs' lith. Inst. Hamburg" in lower right corner), and the text in the lower margin is in both German and French. The map image measures 24 x 38 cm. on a sheet 36( x 385 cm.
There is a second title within the neatline: Carte drôlatique d'Europe pour 1870.
