This very early game, which mentions Captain Cook, describes the geography of the world, which is "divided into four parts Europe, Asia, Africa and America".
Seas and rivers are listed seperately and country decription generally includes religion, counties and produce. In America no religion is listed.
Card 56 (the last) is titled Artic and Antarctic Regions - and in describes antarctic "as.. was formally supposed to contain very extensive countries; but on being explored by Captain Cook, they proved to consist of a body of water, perpetually overspread with masses of ice.
A later version reveals on card 56 that Captain Cook had been to New Zealand. Strangely the card describig France mentions Napoleon, which seems as if this card (and/or others that my history is nt good enough to 1895 notice) were replaced at a later date to keep the information "fresh". Style of the "S" do seem as if it was print earlier than
No makers is identitified but the cards are similar to two games published by John Wallis one printed by J Swan, the other by James Harrison.
