Two Pages


I've mentioned before that I collect maps of Europe from 1869.

Usually, I just have maps of Europe, but occasionally I see an interesting one of a country that I like the look of and will get that as well. There was a very cheap one of England available on eBay recently — £3 buyout for a two-page map. I have a two-page map of Europe frame and hanging on my office wall, so I thought this might complement it. Here's what my Europe map looks like:

You can see the join between the pages down the middle if you look carfully.

When my England map arrived, it was indeed printed across two pages. However, the seller used a slightly different definition of what constituted a "page":

I don't think I'll be getting that one framed, to be honest.
