As published at the time of this map, c.1920:
Russia opened her campaigns on the eastern front with a pronounced salient - Poland - thrust far in to the heart of the Central Empires. To the north of Poland lay East Prussia, of which the southern strip is a difficult country of hill and marsh, the Masurian Lakes region. To the south lay Austrian Galicia, most of which slopes downwards towards Poland, so that many rivers flow to the north or north-east from the Carpathian mountains. Across the plain of Poland the Vistula flows in a natural trench to enter Prussia between Wloclawek and Thorn.

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.
