Map Samplers

Map samplers were commonly worked by children during the latter part of the 18th and the 19th century. Often worked in schools, institutions and orphanages, it was a method of teaching geography, diligence and obedience.
Some map samplers were pre-printed even in those times whilst others were worked from drawings or from memory. It was quite common for a child to enlarge his or her home county whilst ignoring our capital city!
My first version of the Map of England was drawn for me by my husband who had nagged about me getting around to doing it and in the end he drew it himself!
Having done such a good job of the England Map, he has branched out and it was his outline used for the Map of the USA and the Antique Map of the World
