Stanford's Europe Map is from a fascinating series of reproductions from the Edward Stanford Cartographic Collection archive. This map was made by the famous cartographer John Arrowsmith and published by Stanfords in 1884. The map presents the continent at the height of its great empires: imperial Russia with Finland and much of Poland united Germany, including Alsace and part of Lorraine, the Austro-Hungarian Empire (although already post the Compromise, still shown here as one country) with north-western Balkans, and the Ottomans still with Albania and much of present-day Greece.

Country boundaries are outlined in bright colours, while the pale background with subtle hatching indicates the mountain ranges are, in most places, printed very faintly. Hence, names of towns and numerous geographical regions marked on the map are easy to read. The map also has an unusually large number of names of smaller rivers. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 5°

The map can come either printed on heavyweight 160 gsm paper or laminated. The paper version is perfect for framing under glass, and the laminated version is exceptionally hard-wearing as we use a true encapsulation of two pieces of 80-micron gloss laminate.

Alternatively, we can supply this map on 395 gsm HP Professional Matte Canvas using pigment-based inks - making the map highly durable and fade resistant. The exceptional clarity of printing makes this map a stunning addition to any room, and its high quality means that it will provide years of enjoyment.

The easiest way to hang your canvas map is by having wooden hang rollers attached top and bottom with a hanging cord on the top roller, so all you have to do is put a hook on the wall. The hang rails come lacquered in a natural timber colour.

Note: Please allow ten working days to deliver hang railed maps as they need to be attached by our framer.
