A Chart of the World on Mercator's Projection ...

Steel engraving with original, outline colour, dissected and laid onto linen, in its original slipcase by John Arrowsmith. Published by Edward Stanford, 55 Charing Cross, 1 May 1876.

Sheet size: 43” x 25 3/4” plus margins.

Light foxing throughout, otherwise very good with lovely hand colouring.

A large, finely engraved map. As its extended title explains, '... Shewing (sic) the Principal Ocean Steam Routes, The Submarine Telegraphs, etc', its placement of the Pacific Ocean and Islands in the centre enables all Inter-Continental shipping routes to be displayed.
