The World On Mercator's Projection Showing The British Possessions : E. Stanford

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Mounted on canvas and folding into boards with Stanford's label and advertisements pasted on, this is a large and detailed world map, centred on the Pacific Ocean, with the British Empire Possessions shown in red. The poles are displayed as inset hemispheres and annotated with recent discoveries and on the map are references to the voyages of Captain Cook, Enderby, Biscoe and Kemp. The map originally appeared in Edward Stanford's London Atlas of Universal Geography which was published in 1887 and, despite its publication history deriving from an early nineteenth century atlas by John Arrowsmith, one of the best British atlases of the period. Examples of the sheet maps that made up the atlas were also sold separately and kept up-to-date on an individual basis, as in this example.
