LONDON GEOGRAPHICAL INSTITUTE. [A map illustrating the British dominance of the seas]
Navy League Map of the British Empire. London: George Philip, c.1924. Coloured printed map.495 x 630mm, laid on linen and folded into printed buckram covers, as issued.
A map of the world on Mercator's projection, with the British Empire coloured red and highlighting the shipping routes, surrounded by tables, 'Flags and Badges of the British Empire', naval rank insignia and silhouettes of ships showing the development of the British Navy from the 9th century through Tudor times and H.M.S Victory to H.M.S. Hood, one of the largest warships of the period. Despite her reputation as being invincible Hood was destroyed by the Bismark in 1941, with only three survivors from the 1418 crew. The Navy League was founded in 1895 as a pressure group aimed at influencing maritime thinking in Parliament and reminding the nation of its naval history and dependence on the sea, although they also sponsored cadets and sea scouts as the Navy League Boys' Naval Brigade.
