Color lithographed map of the world that breaks humanity into nine racial categories. The map proceeds to illustrate the world using the color-coded key established. It also chooses to divide the world into different zones based on diet.

Text written throughout describes the people who live in these areas, with the map further subdividing ethnicities to produce new groups like "Californians." Savvy viewers will see the mentions of European colonialism scattered throughout, notably the text that states when Indo-Europeans arrived in an area as well as the large extent of the Indo-European habitation depicted in this map.

Text written around the map is the standard pseudoscience phrenology of the mid-1800s—much mention of skull examination and wild leaps in logic based on physical appearance. The plate implies this section was written by Dr. Gustaf Kombst in 1854.
