MAJOR ANSELL’S PATENT METHOD OF MOUNTING ingenious early 20th century folding map system, utilised by Edward Stanford map sellers of London.

Printed instructions in English on how to use’Major Ansell’s Patent Method of Mounting’ on inside of front and rear covers. Maps segmented and laid on linen, as per the fashion. The various parts comprised of composite elements of Henry Barrère’s’Touring Club de France’ map, cleverly re-arranged to fold-out in a number of handy ways. Each of the 8 printed sides measuring 1.32m x 0.66m, giving a total printed area on both sides of approx. 6.9 square metres. The 4 maps fitting snugly into a bespoke leather case by Edward Stanford, with his stamp on underside of front flap’Edward Stanford / 12.13.14 Long Acres.
