Spectacular and very informative world map showing a detailed pre-First World War delineation. Along the top are flags of nations together with maps of the Polar regions, with explorers routes and dates, numerous inset plans of major cities including New York, Hong Kong, Adelaide and so on. At the sides, detail of the Panama and Suez Canals are shown, while along the base are several Gazetteers, which include the British Empire and steamship routes. There is also a map of the British Isles and a system of timeclocks. British possessions are coloured red, and the 1895 and 1905 country population figures are given. Chief explorations are shown; the last event given here is the 1907 Mikkelsen exploration of the Beaufort Sea. Dissected and mounted on linen and folded into worn, cloth-covered boards with title in gilt to the front and spine. There are distinctive endpapers and a charming bookplate "H.E. Stone, age 10 years, 19th of July, 1908 From Father".
