Attractive antique hand-color lithographed map game, featuring Europe, North Africa, and the Holy Land, published by William Spooner in London in 1843.
The map is colored by major region or country, with a multitude of detailed vignette views and images of people and animals.
The Victoria and Albert Museum provides the following explanation of the game:
Five players take the parts of The Travellers, who are from different nations, Austria, Sweden, Russia, Prussia and England. They must make their way to their respective capital cities each starting from a different city in Africa, or on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. This game is played with a teetotum or spinner with four sides marked N., S., E., W. representing the directions they must move in.
