. Color lithograph pictorial map poster, 39 x 49 inches (neatline) on sheet 40 x 49 3/4 inches. Archivally mounted on linen. Signed and dated in the image in a banner at lower right, with 'P.R.D. 182.' in the lower right margin. Map was folded with some wear and short tears to margin, a few tiny areas have been inpainted, but overall the map is very clean and bright, and is a startlingly beautiful piece. A stunning map in which the artist MacDonald Gill makes glorious the British Postal System. The map is presented within a half circle with countries of the world splayed in the manner of an azimuthal equidistant projection around the North Pole (a projection that gained popularity at this time, notably through the work of the American designer and cartographer Richard Edes Harrison with his Air Age maps). With the British Isles at the centre, black lines fan out showing the routes used by the General Post Office in delivering mail around the world. Along the lower edge of the map are eleven depictions of ships throughout history that were used to deliver the mail - from the time of King Alfred AD 900 to the RMS Queen Mary 1936. At upper left and right an image of a post box and postal truck and docked ship being loaded show the humble route of this great endeavour. .
