Inspired by the then-fashionable style of sentimental cartography (as exemplified by the Carte de Tendre or Gulliver's Travels), in 1663 Paul Tallement published an imaginary allegorical travel-memoir Voyage de l'isle d'amour (Voyage to the isle of love), where the places are ruled by figures such as Respect, Concern, Pride, Warmth, Modesty and (in the second part) Coquetry and Gallantry.
