Cloth-backed reproduction from the Old Folding Maps of a political map of the world published by Edward Stanford in 1884 with Pacific Ocean at its centre. Country boundaries, drawn in different colours, present Europe and Africa very different from today, Asia with many changes mainly in the Middle East, but the Americas mostly unchanged. A particularly interesting feature of the map is the difference in the presentation of the two Polar Regions: the Arctic Ocean with most of its coastline already there, whilst the Antarctic is still in the early stages of exploration and only segments of its coast already mapped. Latitude and longitude lines are at 10° intervals; the map is drawn on a Mercator’s projection.

Each individual cloth-backed map is sold folded in a colourful case covered with a unique design marbled paper – no two cases are identical.

PLEASE NOTE: this title is also available as a paper wall map in two different sizes as part of the “Stanfords Classics Collection of Historical Maps”. To see the full list of other titles in the series of cloth-backed reproductions from Old Folding Maps please click on the series link.
