This atlas consists of twelve maps of European countries, each with the unique national stereotype created by the author based on the outline and shape of the country. Each image is accompanied by a short verse describing the author’s creation. In the introduction to the atlas, the author, William Harvey described his intention in creating it:”It is believed that illustrations of Geography may be rendered educational, and prove of service to the young scholars…..”

For Shakespeare’s Prince, and Princess of Wales,
To England dear – Her royal spirit quails;
From skating faint, she rests upon the snow;
Shrinking from unclean beasts that grin below.

Here, Denmark is shown as a female figure with ice skates
