Brought to you by D. W. Kellogg circa 1833–1842. It’s hilariously awful. The Land of Display, the Land of Selfishness, the Land of Sentiment, The Land of Love of Dress, the Land of Coquetry….on and on. No doubt a man who probably had his heart broken right before he drew it.
Daniel Wright Kellogg, known as D. W. Kellogg, was the principal partner in the lithography firm D. W. Kellogg & Company,
which was in business from about 1830-1840 in Hartford, Connecticut.
The full caption on the ‘Map’ reads: “The Open Country of Woman’s Heart, Exhibiting its internal communications, and the facilities and dangers to Travellers therein.”
My Land of the Love of Dress was taken over and conquered years ago by the Mongol Horde of the Land of Denim and Fleece, so this doesn’t apply to me.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY AND MAY I JUST SAY…WE’VE COME A LONG WAY BABY!!!
