North Polar Regions : R. Andree / The Times

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A finely engraved and detailed map comprising a central hemisphere northwards from 60 degrees with, in each corner enlarged details of Sptzbergen, Nova Zemla, East and South-West Greenland. The latest locations of recent United States, Russian and European expeditions are shown, the most up-to-date and furthest north being Nansen's location in June 1895, marked as 86.13.36. Comparison with the equivalent map of just two years earlier indicates how many more coastlines had been recently confirmed, notably in the Candian Arctic, Franz Josef Land and northern Greenland. The Times Atlas became the standard English world atlas of the twentieth century but had its origin in the fine maps being produced in Germany by Richard Andree who prepared and printed, in Leipzig, maps for the early editions of "The Times Atlas" from 1895 to 1900.
