click here to view a large version in a separate window

A decorative and almost modern map of the world, on "The "Atlantis" Projection", an elliptical view including all of the major land masses, with Europe central. The map is coloured to reflect the political situation in 1957, with the Communist states of China and the U.S.S.R. in orange surrounded by the purple "Western Alliances". Notes in the lower corners of the map note important treaties including the formation of NATO and Warsaw Pact. An unusual and attractive map from "The Times Atlas Of The World - Mid-Century Edition", one of the finest atlases of the last century.
