Title

Road to the Temple of Honour and Fame board game cover, marble gazebo guarded by two military men

Description

Photographic scan of cover for the board game Road to the Temple of Honour and Fame, London: John Harris, 1811. Illustration is a hand-colored etching that features a round Greco-Roman-style temple with decorative pillars and a dome, topped by a small statuette of a toga-wearing figure. Boughs of fabric are pinned around the top of the pillars, anchored by a crown and various helmets. Title of the game is printed on a long scroll hanging down between pillars, with a mix of serif and ornate cursive black type. Two soldiers, one uniformed in blue and one uniformed in red, stand on either side of the scroll. The profile of other men, ostensibly standing on the other side of the temples, is visible. At the foot of the temple steps, two small figures are mid-step as they approach the scroll. At the foot of the page, a round hole in the cover is cut into the edge.
