Composite illustration casting Margaret Cavendish as MAD MADGE. Portrait of Margaret Cavendish, engraved by Peter van Schuppen after Abraham van Diepenbeeck, ca. 1655, is juxtaposed with a graphic presentation of quote from a 1691 issue of _The Athenian Mercury_ (a popular science journal for women), which makes an oblique reference to Mad Madge.
