The Royal Geographical Pastime exhibiting the Tour of Europe Printed & Sold by Wm. Faden Charing Cross. This is a very early English game map, by Thomas Jefferys Sr., published in 1768.
The first such game published in London, also of Europe, was issued by John Jefferys (seemingly no relation) in 1759, but it seems to have had little influence, as no example traced in an institutional collection, and only one later printing known.,br. It was only with the appearance of this map, some nine years later, that mainstream map-sellers and publishers recognised the potential for such items both for games and for the sale into the burgeoning educational market and from this point all the main publishers sought to have a stock of these.
Although published in 1768, the latest date in the game text is 1758, against St. Malo (85), Cherburg (88) and Carrickfergus (92).

The Royal Genealogical Pastime of the Sovereigns of England
from Egbert to George the 3rd.
Printed in London for Newbery & Wallis, 1791

The Utilities of the Game state “this being a scientific game, in which the amusement and Instruction of the parties are equally considered….this, while it will amuse, will not a little contribute to make the Players acquainted with the Genealogy of their own King”.

Playing The Game - When you land on a space, you then read the details, on the sheet, about the monarch and whether they were regarded as good or bad (or neutral). Your move depends on the monarch landed on, and the game’s view of them

Henry VIII - “as the treatment of his queens was so unjustified, the player must go back to No 1”

Edward III - “was a great and valiant prince, the player moves forward two numbers"

Condition – Sheet – undamaged, well colored and clean; some foxing and a stain on the right hand rules (about 5cms by 5cms) / Rules and descriptions all on the sheet – easy to read (with long S) / Slipcase – Good; scuffed but complete with label / Sheet and slipcase both dated 30th Nov 1791

Postage As postage often changes it will be provided at time of purchase. Postage will be at cost rounded up to the nearest £1.00 to cover packaging.

Royal-Geographical Amusement, or the safe and expeditious Traveller through all the Parts of Europe by Sea and by Land: an instructive game. Calculated for the Improvement of the Young Learners of Geography, By Dr. Journey
Although dated 1787 in the imprint, the letterpress text has been revised, referring to the fall of the Bastille in 1789, while 80 reads, “Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Stay here two turns to view the tomb of Gustavus IIId. King of Sweden, who was shot at a masquerade on the 29th of March 1792, by one of his own discontented officers; for which villanous [sic] act he had his head and right hand cut off.”
It was originally published by Robert Sayer in 1774.
Laurie and Whittle succeeded Sayer in 1794 and were in turn succeeded by R H Laurie in 1813. It would appear that the game is an impression from the original plate with the lettering altered.

One of the first game that was not totally an educational game.
The introduction states
"If parents who take upon themselves the pleasing task of instructing their children (or others to whom that important trust may be delegated) will cause them to stop at each character and request their attention to a few moral and judicious observations, explanatory of each character as they proceed and contrast the happiness of a virtuous and well spent life with the fatal consequences arising from vicious and immoral pursuits, this game may be rendered the most useful and amusing of any that has hitherto been offered to the public"

The Age of Man is divided into seven periods of 12 years, viz. Infancy to Youth, Manhood, Prime of Life, Sedate Middle Age, Old Age, Decrepitude and Dotage.

Each individual square on the course represents one year of a hypothetical life and contains a concise, miniature illustration, sometimes of a recognizable personage, ie
“The Poet” at space 41, represented by Alexander Pope;
“The Patriot” at space 55, by William Pitt;
“The Immortal Man” at space 84 is Isaac Newton, who had lived to that age
Although advertised as “the most Agreeable and Rational Recreation Ever Invented for Youth of Both Sexes,” the characters in the game are all male
The game was produced unchanged for many years, and was still being advertised in John Harris' Catologue in 1830

Condition - Human Life / Sheet - very good - no damage, just light wear / Rules on the sheet / No Slipcase

A New Geographical Pastime.
Published Jan 20th 1796. by John Wallis at his Map Warehouse No 16 Ludgate Street

Printed for John Wallis at his wholesale repository 13 Warwick Square London
by T Sorrel, Bartholomew Close, Smithfield.

Undated but with the long S, that the later versions (1802) does not have
In a slipcase dated 1802, so it may have been sold initially without a slipcase and then the style updated, or it could have been put into the slipcase at a later date.


It is a coloured engraved double hemispherical map.
It shows how little appears to be known about Africa at that time
ie Guinea ..of which little in known to Europeans."

There is information about New Holland (Australia) - The largest island in the world
And a number of references to Captain Cook's journeys

59 - Bhering’s Straits – also called Cook’s Straits

Condition - Voyage Round the World / Slipcase - good engraved picture - scuffed and rubbed at the edges / Playing sheet - this is very good - clean and bright - well colored. / Rules - at base of playing sheet. These appear (in all versions we have seen) to be a separate piece on paper added to the game. This was presumably to keep it updated without reprinting the map. There is a slight difference in the punctuation, as well as the change to the letters ie no long S to the version printed by J Crowder and E Hemsted in 1802.

The Mount of Knowledge (1804) taught that education was a hard-fought process and good decisions would lead to “the mount of knowledge,” but bad decisions would take one back a few steps.

Players start on space one (the Horn Book) and would begin to learn their letters. On their next roll, they can move forward on the board (signifying that they learned their letters).
But, the players had to be careful what spaces they landed on as some of them signified the folly common among young students such as carelessness, truancy, and idleness.
Published and sold by W Richardson, Library, Greenwich;
Also Sold by John Harris, John Wallis and Darton, probably at different times and over a peroid of time.

Condition - Mount of Knowledge / Sheet Stained and a little grubby as per the picture. / Slipcase - Original - scuffed and faded but the Title is legible / rules lacking - but a photcopy is available and can be printed from the V&A web site, which explain every circle

A little unusual Game in that there are only 18 squares - each one with an action. Basically lists the sights in London as the were in 1825. Artwork is not as sharp as in same games of the period. The case has a picture from the game on it, so the cases are not all the same - we have seen three different scences used - so presumably a whole sheet was cut up and all the scences used rather than on chosen to represent the game.

Condition / Sheet no damage, some use so odd small marks / Slipcase - A little worn at the edges but otherwise good-

A paper on linen game that is unusual for the period.
Instead of rewarding "good deeds" and punishing "selfish ones" as per early Snakes and Ladders - this does the opposite!!
Quote from the V&A
" forfeits are given for helping people or animals, while rewards are given for accepting a lift on a cart. In other games, the forfeit would be paid for this as laziness and the reward, usually counters, for the help"
The playing pieces for this game are unusual. They are made of glazed earthenware marked with the letters A to H on the tops.

Condition - Willy's Walk - Complete - Sheet in good, clean condition / playing pieces undamaged / rules are on the sheet / Box - good and clean, but rubbed and scuffed in places

Postage / As postage often changes it will be provided at time of purchase. Postage will be at cost rounded up to the nearest £1.00 to cover packaging.
