Map of a woman's heart

With Valentine's day not such a distant memory- I wanted to share this crazy illustration "The Open Country of A Woman's Heart," dating from 1833-1842  by "A Lady" or more likely, a man.

You can click on the image or here for a larger version... and in a random turn of events, a print is available on my favorite print site ever, 20 x 200 - but I'm not so sure this is what your lady friend would like as a valentine...

Note the Satin Plains in the large Love of Dress region split by the Jewelry Inlet.... Also fond of the rivers of Willful Waste, Novel Reading and Pensive Musings. I guess we should be glad it's not a map of the brain?
