WORLD ON MERCATOR'S PROJECTION
J. RapkinJ. B. AllenH. Warren
A steel engraved map of the world using a Mercator projection, with hand coloured continental borders (except for the British Isles, which are done in the same pink as its dependencies), and pink lines to denote British colonies. 7 illustrations (drawn by Warren) of prominent world landmarks are present throughout the work, and the steam routes to the colonies from Britain are coloured in blue. Relief is shown, and coastlines are shaded using tinting tools.
Greenwich is used for the prime meridian, and no scale bar is present; the scale and coordinates were calculated using the map's graticule.
