Original map first published c.1920. Republished July 2016.
World war one map depicting the historical partition of Poland and the beginnings of modern Poland. The key at the bottom of the map relates to the partition of Poland to Prussia, Austria and Russia.
As published at the time of this map, c.19120:
Poland is the land of the Poles, a people of Slavonic race, and came in to existence as a distinct state in about 1000 .AD. The region was regarded as part of the medieval Empire, but the Poles had rulers of their own, and one of these in 1000 A.D. Boleslaus, called himself the King of Poles. This title he received from the Emperor Otto III, whose vassal, therefore, he regarded himself; but with it the Polish kingdom originated.

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.
