Description

Wonderful set of puzzle map blocks, with the following maps:

1. Europe (card is pasted onto the top of the box)
2. ‘Eastern Hemisphere’ (with highest mountains and longest rivers)
3. North America
4. Scotland
5. England
6. Ireland.

The set is complete and in good condition: the blocks themselves are generally very good, noting some wear, affecting the printed areas (but see images). The loose cards are excellent. The box is worn, with old tape repairs and flaking to the decorative paper; the card for Europe, which is pasted onto the lid, is age-darkened.

There is no date or publisher listed. A date of c.1870 can be established for the maps, based on the delineation of nation-states.
