Summary expansion
The map, drawn and engraved by Karl Lehmann-Dumont in Dresden, depicts the alliance situation and territorial issues from the German point of view towards the end of the first year of the war. "The key countries involved in the war are represented by human caricatures with various props that help illustrate the situation. German text below the map describes each country's "character." The map is printed in bold black outline with blocks of pink, yellow, green, and orange. Below, a lengthy text explains the symbolism of the characters in starkly partisan terms. This map is among numerous so-called satirical or comic maps of war published in Europe during World War I. These maps have various 19th century antecedents, including a satirical map by Paul Hadol (1835-1875) personifying Europe during the Franco-Prussian War"--From the online archive of George Glazer Gallery: Antiquarian Globes, Maps & Prints at http://www.georgeglazer.com/archives/maps/archive-europe/humorkarte.html; see also description at http://www.oldworldauctions.com/archives/detail/145-436.htm
