Description:
Games designed to teach geography were prevalent in Europe. This early 20th century French game illustrates people, vegetation and natural landscapes from around the world. The object of this “lotto” game, which is similar to a modern-day Bingo game, was to fill each board, representing geographic locations, by collecting tiles or cards corresponding to those locales. These games not only imparted geographical knowledge, but also taught social, cultural, and natural science. A set of twelve numbered playing boards, each with onlaid chromolithographed sheet maps featuring national flags, costumes and wildlife. Each board has eight numbered insets which show an image of local inhabitants, features or natural history. Tiles match to insets and complete the image of the map on the board. The New York scene features the famous Flatiron Building, one of the world's first skyscrapers.
