Courtesy of the wonderful British Library, we give you ‘A map or chart of the road of love, and harbour of marriage’, published in 1748.

Marriage, apparently, was a popular subject for spoof cartography in the eighteenth century, with this example containing ‘some sly double meanings’, if your eyes are sharp enough. You have been warned…

The British Library website is a treasure trove. Do take a look some time.
