World war one map depicting the boundaries of Czech-Slovakia as of July 1914. The map itself was published in 1920. The three boundaries depict the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the boundary between Austria and Hungary and the provincial boundaries in Austria. The coloured areas relate to the Fiefs of the Empire at the end of the 10th century, the boundary of the Empire 12th Century, the Greatest extent of the Turkish Empire c.1550, and the possessions of Ferdinand I c.1550.
Description of Czech-Slovakia, as published in 1920:
Czech-Slovakia (Cesky-Slovensky) comprises an area which has never, before 1918, been a separate political unit. The new republic has been made up from Austrian provinces of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, and a portion of northern Hungary which was not administratively distinguished from the remainder of Hungary proper. These four districts (Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia & Slovakia) are cemented by the common Slav origin of their inhabitants whose speech is, for all practical purposes, one tongue.

We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
