Maker: Ernest Dudley Chase.
Rare antique printed color folding map of the world created to help people understand where things stood at the beginning of the US involvement in World War II, printed in 1942 and created by Ernest Dudley Chase. This two-sided folding map shows a variety of weapons and vehicles and explains that is it "A battle map to set the stage for 'total war' on land and sea...." The V's for victory are used decoratively throughout the border, which contains Morse code for the letter V ( ...-). On verso are smaller maps of Europe, Italy, and the English Channel. The border of the map of Europe shows military and navy insignia. In fair condition, very fragile with some minor paper loss at fold intersections, some paper separation at folds, some minor stains, some edge wear, slightly deeper creases in some of the folds. Could be restored but at the sacrifice of the image on one side. Priced as is. Approx. 15 x 35 inches to the neatline.
