Box very lightly worn at extremities. Some tears without loss to the folds on the map of the Deutschen Reiches. Generally in very good condition. Rare. The British Library lists a map of "Mittel-Europa" by this publisher as being issued in 1894. The only similar publication which we have traced. This map tracks the "Englische Bipolar Exp. - projectite Linie 1901" and the "Schwedische Sudpolar Exp. 1901" in the inset mp of the South Polar region. The map indicates trade routes and projected and past expeditions including those of Cook, Columbus and Nansen, with some emphasis on polar exploration. A key to these routes is inset below title.
