Folded, starting at center and with backed repairs to some folds, on very heavy white paper, blank verso. Immense decorative cartouche. Dimensions given are of the image, the page size is slightly larger. A bit worn, as per scan and as to be expected in a wartime map. Quite rare.

This conflict was described by Churchill as the first world war, as it was the first war fought around the globe -- in Asia, Europe, and North / South America.
