Vintage 1943 World Map Showing Vegetation and Ocean Currents

195.00

This is a beautiful wall map from George Philip & Son's Series of Comparative Wall Atlases. This piece is shows the natural vegetation and the January ocean currents. The colors and graphics are both very strong on this map and give it a wonderful look. 

Distributed by Denoyer-Geppert in the USA, this map is dated 1943. The map only shows the physical features of the world which hides the fact that World War II is in full swing. 

There is minor damage to the paper along the top edge where it meets the wooden dowel. The linen backing is keeping it stable. Some soiling has also occurred along the bottom of the map. Both issues can be seen in photos.

Map measures 44" x 36"
