Description

Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, was first performed in 1599 and was likely the first of Shakespeare’s works to be performed at the Globe Theater of London, indelibly linked with the Immortal Bard to this day. The tragedy follows the relationship between Brutus and Caesar prior to the latter’s murder and subsequent Roman Civil War.

This map covers much of the Roman Empire and was drawn by Barbara Rogers Hemsworth. It was published by Educational Illustrators of Urbana, Illinois in 1957 as a visual guide to the Shakespearian play. Illustrated vignettes highlight pivotal movements from various scenes, while a list in the lower right labels the twenty-four various points identified within the image.
