Las unificaciones de Alemania e Italia

    This is a well known caricature from the early 19th century depicting the absurdities of the tariff situation in the German Confederation prior the establishment of the Zollverein. 

    The merchant is argueing with the Lippean customs officer: "You see, officer, that I have nothing to declare, since what's in the back of the cart has not yet crossed the Lippean border, in the middle there's nothing and what's in the front is already beyond the Lippean border once again."
