1870 – P. Hadol – Nieuwe kaart van Europa


Title:                      “Nieuwe kaart van Europa 1870”


Original, Dutch edition, of Paul Haddol’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. In the center, a buffoonish Prussia interacts with its suspicious neighbors. 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.”

Published by Emrick & Binger Haarlem in 1870.
