Collection: Comparative Maps - Antique

Comparative maps were popular in the mid to late 1800s when Europeans felt they knew almost all there was to know about the world. They compiled the information into these stunning info graphics that we call comparative maps or charts. Sometimes they later learned that they were missing something!
