Stanford's General Map of the World Map is from a fascinating series of reproductions from our Edward Stanford Cartographic Collection archive. This map from 1920 reflects the changes in political boundaries and the new world order in the aftermath of World War I. 

The colouring and annotations to place names not only indicate dominions and colonial possessions, with the British Empire in its customary red but also show territories administered under the Mandate of the League of Nations. On landmasses, topographic information is provided by names of mountain ranges and of an unusually large number of rivers. Main railway routes are also marked. On seas and oceans, principal shipping routes are shown annotated with distances.

The map has latitude and longitude lines at 15-degree intervals and for each longitude, lines indicate the time difference with the Greenwich Meridian. The map is drawn on a Mercator's projection. 

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 in the wall. The hang rails come lacquered in a natural timber colour.

Note: Please allow 10 working days to deliver hang railed maps as they need to be attached by our framer.
