Original map first published c.1920. Republished July 2016.
World war one map depicting the Western Front in France, during the first world war 1917, from St Quentin in the south, to Cambrai in the north east and Arras in the north west. The smaller inset maps feature the Battle of Cambrai and Bourlon Wood.
As published at the time of this map, c.19120:
The Battle of Cambrai (Nov - Dec.1917) included the subsidiary battle for the Bourlon Ridge. In Several ways it was one of the most remarkable British Offensives of the war. It was a surprise attack, marked by a novel method in tactics, unique in the annals of war. Tye battle had for its objective the important town of Cambrai and was undertaken to assist the sorely tried Italian armies by preventing the Germans increasing the pressure upon them by fresh divisions drawn from the Western Front. The battle was carefully organised, the main feature of the preparations being the remarkable plan to use Tanks in large numbers to take the place of the usual prolonged bombardment for the destruction of the Germans barbed wire defenses.

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.
