The Western Hemisphere in the third quarter of the 19th century on a cloth-backed reproduction of a map drawn by the Stanford’s Geographical Establishment and “published under the direction of the Committee of General Literature and Education Appointed by The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge and of the National Society”.

Individual countries are presented in gentle pastel hues typical of hand-coloured maps, with their borders outlined in stronger colours. The publication date of 1877 gives us the Americas more or less as we know them now but Antarctica with only a handful of coastal places named and believed to be flat as a pancake. Hachures are used to show the mountain ranges and many other features of contemporary cartography are included: ocean currents and trade winds, surrounding frames showing the tropical zones and the position of the sun, etc. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 10° intervals. Additional panels on this map of the Western Hemisphere give examples of six different map projections.

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

PLEASE NOTE: a wall map version of this title is available as part of the “Stanfords Classics Collection of Historical Reproductions”. To see the full list of other titles in this series from the Old Folding Maps please click on the series link.
