This is an original antique relief map of Europe by the Atlas School Supply Company, constructed in 1907 out of their headquarters in Chicago, Illinois.
The map offers a combination of political geography, physical topography, with rivers, lakes, mountains ranges, plateaus, etc. noted throughout. Larger towns, cities, capitols, and geo-political boundaries are also provided, while roads and railways are omitted from the map. A vertical scale at lower-right notes that the height of elevations is exaggerated 45 times.
The map presents Europe at the time of the duel-monarchy, Austro-Hungarian Empire that spanned the years of 1867 to 1918 or for more context, between the Austro-Prussian War and World War I. Geographically speaking, Austria-Hungary was the second largest country in Europe after Russia which takes up nearly half of the map and includes much of present-day Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, and the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
Condition: Map is in B condition, toned throughout with some surface damage, the worst of which is in the brown border that surrounds the map. The original frame is sturdy and ready for hanging.
