  • (World - Thematic) The Commonwealth Of Nations Or the British Empire, Webb, 1937
    An ornate boast of a map that dramatizes the extent of the empire on which the sun never set. Made for the coronation of George VI, it includes gold-ish ink highlights and two quotes attesting to the empire's power from Milton and Emerson. Ironically, it wouldn't be that long after publication that the decline would set in.
    Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 14.5 x 22 (inches)
