Drawing maps of the world in two hemispheres was a popular geography project of 19th century schoolchildren. A young woman named Juliana Carpenter created this example when she was 15 years old. A reward for skill in map composition is in the upper left corner, and a miniature portrait of the artist at age 26, painted by her sister, is in the center. The addition of the large floral border suggests that this map was made at a private academy. This example stands in stark contrast to the simpler Quaker-made maps, which typically have fewer embellishments and simple garlands of vines and leaves.
