Geography Bewitched! Or A Droll Caricature Map Of Ireland (1793)

This is a hand coloured etching from 1793 or thereabouts. It depicts Ireland as Lady Hibernia Bull and "is humbly dedicated to her husband the great Mr. John Bull". The British Museum has a couple of examples of it. There's also this companion piece of England & Wales.
