Produced and published by the prominent English mapmaking company founded by Royal Geographical Society member Edward Stanford, this intricately detailed depiction of the regions between Constantinople and Calcutta immediately transports the viewer back in time. Stanford's career spanned more than six decades, and the Stanford shop has become an iconic London landmark. Stanford's work across Asia, India, and the Middle East are among some of these regions' most sought-after productions. His extensive travel and maps were colloquially known as Library Maps. He worked closely with explorers, and the Stanford Range in British Columbia bears his namesake.
The early twentieth century was a period of significant transition as advances in the western world expanded access, and the modern era was rushing forward. Published only two years before World War I, these regions would see significant expansion and development throughout the coming decades. Constantinople was the Roman Capital of the Middle East until it was renamed Istanbul in 1930. Calcutta remains the Capital of the western Indian state of West Bengal and was the center for the Indian independence movement, which gained control of the nation from British colonial rule in 1947.
This map's distinctive aesthetic and classic appearance make it an authentic piece of global and cartographical history. Stanford's pedigree and skill made him one of the most respected English cartographers of the nineteenth century. As British expansion increased during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, maps became extremely popular, and Stanford was the first sole proprietor.
