Published by D.W. Kellog between 1833-1842, this amusing Map of the Open Country of Woman’s Heart paints the “fairer sex” in a rather unflattering light.
From the mole traps in the Province of Deception, to the city of Moi-meme in the Land of Selfishness, to the Plains of Susceptibility in the Region of Sentimentality, this ever-so-charming illustration certainly demonstrates this Victorian gentleman’s equal taste for maps and disdain for women. I suspect this fellow must have had a recent broken heart (see The Museum of Broken Relationships).
But then again, that just be my Jilting Corner (in the Land of Coquetry, of course) talking…
From the fantastic Brain Pickings.

Fantastic. It’s inspired me to make my own. :-)
