[Caricatural maps] Het Gekkenhuis (oud liedje, nieuwe wijs)

Col. lithogr., 40 x 52 cm. Amst., Senefelder, ca. 1914. This fascinating propaganda map was created by L. Raemaekers, a famous Dutch cartoonist, at the beginning of World War I. Early in the war Raemaekers crossed the border into Belgium to witness first-hand the brutality of the advancing Germans. The title of this map translates roughly as: "The Insane Asylum (Old Song, New Tune)" referring to Holland's perspective of the war waging around them. Although Holland is depicted sitting peacefully, smoking a pipe, he is holding a gun and keeps an ever-watchful eye on his neighbor.

Folds as publ., sl. foxed, partly rep. tear along middle fold.
