Barrass, Clive (mapmaker).
Sydney, Australia. Australian Motorists Petrol Company Ltd. (A.M.P.), WW II Era (1940- 1945).
Large brightly colored (British Empire shown in red) world map on sheet size 24 x 40 inches, originally folded now archivally mounted on linen, with text at bottom stating "With the Compliments of Australian Motorists Petrol Co. Ltd. (Authorized Capital £1,000,000)." Overall good clean condition; breaks at several folds and a minute bit of paper loss in the Celebes (now Sulawesi) and northern Afghanistan now minimised and infilled and scarcely noticeable. A color key identifies the European countries claiming colonies in various parts of the world, with the continent of Africa being the chief recipient of these territorial claimants. None can hold a candle to Britain, however; it is shown to be the most dominant of European empire builders, claiming Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Southern and Eastern Africa, India, and of course British Guiana. "Japanese Mandate" dominates the map northeast of Papua New Guinea. Map is replete with dotted lines showing shipping routes throughout the world. Text at bottom left of map states: "In Wartime buy Australian," while text at bottom right margin reads: "Clive Barrass – Copyright - N.S.W." The map usefully documents the world as it used to be, not that long ago. Item #55309
