Voyage Autour du Monde / Round the World. 1891.
This detailed design promotes round-the-world travel in style via ship and rail. The globe gives us part of the itinerary: from the right, the ship comes through the Red Sea and the Mediterranean, then by railway from Marseille to Le Havre, by ship again to New York, where the railroad—shown at the bottom of the design—takes you to San Francisco either by way of Chicago or New Orleans, and finally by ship again across the Pacific. It's one of the most magnificent travel posters ever created.
