Colour relief map representing a bird's eye view from the air, encompassing a wide sweep of the globe from Italian Somaliland at the lower edge of the map to Morocco and Italy at the upper edge of the map, just below a distant horizon of the earth's curvature. Shading is used to show relief. This style of 'aviation age' cartography was made popular by Richard Edes Harrison just before the advent of the Second World War. The perspective emphasises the proximity of areas than might appear further removed on a "conventional" map - an important realisation in wartime. On the map it is noted that "This map is divided into 200-mile squares, shown in perspective." The map shows railways, international boundaries, major cities and rivers and also includes European possessions in Africa. Slight tear at old fold and negligible stains to margin but the printed area is not affected.
