THE WORLD ON MERCATOR'S PROJECTION

by

G.H.Swanston

Published by Archibald Fullarton, London & Edinburgh circa 1860 in

"The Royal Illustrated Atlas of Modern Geography"


A highly detailed large format original antique map of The World.

Below the main map are "Hemispheres on the Plane of the Horizon in London", and "Regions adjacent to the North Pole".

Interesting coverage of various unconnected sections of the coast of Antarctica.

Alaska is still Russian America, Canada is British America and Greenland is Danish America.

The high level of detail can be seen in the close up images provided.


An interesting map enhanced with original colouring, printed on heavy grade paper, blank verso. Central fold as issued.

Slight damage to the lower central fold (mostly marginal) has been reinforced verso and light browning affects the upper section of the fold line.
A scattering of faint spotting can also be seen.


Approx. 20"x 16" (520mm x 410mm) map area only with good margins beyond.


Archibald Fullarton (1809 -1896) originally published his Royal Illustrated Atlas from 1852 as a part work and it remains an iconic atlas characterized by finely detailed engraving and wonderful illustrations. Even the maps lacking illustrations are delicately coloured in pastel shades and are widely collected for their decorative appeal.
