Relief map of Asia dated 1907 and made by Atlas School Supply Co. of Chicago, Illinois. It appears to be hand lettered and the relief is deep. Japan is shown in a separate scale at right. The original oak frame shows in sections beneath the paint and the map itself appears to have been sprayed with shellac. A grand and very interesting three dimensional map.
