Abstract

An archival study of nineteenth-century children’s dissected maps and puzzles, this article places puzzles alongside children’s geography textbooks and adventure fiction within an imperial context. The article evaluates the puzzle pieces, boxes, and possible methods of assembly, speculating on the effects of such play on child players’ imperial consciousness.
