Original map first published c.1920. Republished July 2016.
World war one map depicting Serbia and the Austro- Serbia Front, which was 340 miles in length, during the first world war 1914 - 1918. The Front was formed on the north by the Danube and Save Rivers, and on the west by the Drina River. The map extends to Hungary in the north and Greece to the south.
Published at the time of this map, c.1920:
Serbia saw the opening of the Great War on July 28th, 1914, when two Serbian steamers on the Danube were fired upon. On July 29th the Austrian armies, expecting an easy conquest of their little neighboring state, advanced in to Serbia, and bombarded it's capital, Belgrade. The Austro-Serbian Frontier extended over a length of 340 miles, was formed on the north by the Danube and Save Rivers and on the west by the Drina River. These water barriers were easily surmounted by Austria, as both the save and the Drina river were shallow, while Austria had previously constructed strategic railways to many points of vantage on the northern frontier of Serbia.

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.
