INTRODUCTION.


H E young lady who is responsible for these Sketches
is now in her fifteenth year, and her first idea of
Map Drawing is traceable to her meeting with a small
figure of Punch riding on a Dolphin, and contrived to
represent England. The thought occurred to her when
seeking to amuse a brother confined to his bed by illness.
It is believed that these illustrations of Geography may be
rendered educational, and prove of service to young scholars,
who commonly think Globes and Maps but wearisome aids
to knowledge, by enabling them to retain the outline of the
various countries so humourously caricatured in the work,
by associating them in their mind's eye with odd fancy
figures. The bluffs and headlands of Scotland would be
identified with the struggling Piper, and La Belle France
with the grotesque looking madam dancing before a








portable glass. Nearly every system of artificial memory
supposes arbitrary way-marks, with which dates and events
must be connected, and we have all remarked, when we are
at a loss to recollect words or things, how vividly they are
recalled when the mind is able to grasp objects associated
with them, as a favourite book or a beautiful prospect. If
these geographical puzzles excite the mirth of children;
the amusement of a moment may lead to the profitable
curiosity of youthful students, and embue the mind with a
healthful taste for an acquaintance with foreign lands. No
history, no journal can be understood without a knowledge
of maps, and good service is done when we make such
information more easy and agreeable.
